Adaptation in the Asias

Program Locations: South Asia; South East Asia; China
Project Duration: July 2008
Project Lead: Marcus Moench, President

Project Overview

This project examined the underlying systemic factors that enable or constrain vulnerable people in vulnerable locations from adapting. Investigations were conducted across Asia and highlighted points of convergence and divergence between regions regarding issues of relevance for research on adaptation to climate change. The project also generated reviews of climate change adaptation research in South and South East Asia, along with China, to identify present knowledge gaps on adaptation and application, including the practice of research.
