    Ideally, all stakeholders understand the synergies between climate change mitigation and adaptation and know how to connect the dots so we can prepare for the consequences of climate change. However, in practice, there may be tradeoffs between sustainability and resilience, for example, building materials or practices that reduce energy. Synergies represent the extra value that can be created from the takeover. Assuming that the buyer has to pay a reasonable price for the takeover target, then no value has been created at that point. For example, consider a business valued at £10 million by the market (e.g. from the market capitalisation on the stock market). This was one of the key findings of Trends and Tradeoffs in Employee Medical Benefits, a survey by Corporate Synergies Group and the not-for-profit .

The results revealed important tradeoffs (e.g. between stormwater and connectivity criteria) and synergies (e.g.

Abstract. The transformational potential of Agenda lies in the synergies to be found among the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs were designed to be interdependent, requiring enhanced policy coherence for sustainable development, and forests have a prominent role to play in their success.

Examples of synergies between response options and NCPs include positive impacts on habitat maintenance from activities like invasive species management and agricultural diversification. However, many of these synergies are not automatic, and are dependent on well-implemented activities requiring institutional and enabling conditions for.

Second is the economic perspective of understanding tradeoffs and synergies among the economic, environmental and social dimensions of these systems at farm.

A trade-off (or tradeoff) is a situational decision that involves diminishing or losing one quality, quantity or property of a set or design in return for gains in other simple terms, a tradeoff is where one thing increases and another must decrease. Tradeoffs stem from limitations of many origins, including simple physics – for instance, only a certain volume of objects can fit.
