The research results presented at the conference highlighted a range of issues central to understanding the impacts of climate change in the Himalaya region as well as in developing effective responses to them. The resulting exchange of information was an important step in assisting the region in its effort to adapt to climate change as it added to researchers understanding of the complexities in global and regional climate change processes.
