Posted On: 2008-09-01

The South Asia region, which includes countries from Afghanistan to Bhutan is characterized by poverty, conflicts and extreme, often erratic climatic variability. While floods, droughts and high intensity storms are typically understood as normal features of life, the degree to which people have adapted to variable climate varies across the region.This report presents South Asia-wide review of climate change adaptation research, intended to identify present knowledge, gaps on adaptation and application including the practice of research.This scoping study makes a distinction between planned and autonomous adaptation strategies including ways in which social and physical infrastructure enable adaptation.This report explores how groups in the vulnerable areas of the region are likely to experience stresses from impacts of climate change.
