Climate Adaptation in Asia: Knowledge Gaps and Research Issues in South East Asia

Posted On: 2008-06-01

This study engages a conceptual framework that recognizes that social and ecological systems are inherently complex, interconnected and dynamic. Climate change impacts will cut across a range of sectors: agriculture, water, fisheries, coastal,health and infrastructure. They will exacerbate existing problems of food insecurity, malnutrition, disease and vulnerable livelihoods in contexts along the rural to urban continuum. These impacts will be compounded by other non-climatic stresses, such as globalization, political insecurity, market pressure, weak institutions and poverty.The study embraced an understanding of adaptation that builds on the IPCC definition of actions that people take in response to, or in anticipation of, projected or actual changes in climate to adjust to and cope with impacts, moderate damages, and take advantage of opportunities.
