Climate Adaptation in Asia:Knowledge Gaps and Research Issues in China Final Report to IDRC and DFID

Posted On: 2008-09-01

Climate research has attracted considerable attention in China, in part because of the strategic importance of food production and the historical exposure of large rural and urban populations to extreme events (droughts, floods, typhoons). There is reasonable consensus on the broad nature of future climate change in different regions of the country under various global emission scenarios, but high uncertainty as to how these trends will be expressed locally. A great deal of research has dealt with impacts on agricultural production, particularly in the highly productive North China Plain and floodplain regions of the south.This is a summary of a longer report that has been commissioned by DFID (UK) and IDRC (Canada).This study identified adaptation research issues that were likely to affect large numbers of vulnerable people, and addressed substantial gaps in knowledge or were under represented in other research efforts.This document summarizes the conclusions of the China study team.
