Overview for Climate Change In Asia And The Pacific: How Can Countries Adapt?

Climate change is regarded as one of the most serious developmental challenges the world faces, and adapting to it is an urgent requirement for countries across the globe. Developing countries of the Asia and Pacific region, despite contributing the least to the emission of greenhouse gases, are the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change.

Climate Change in Asia and the Pacific compiles policies and best practices on climate change adaptation, emphasizing the fact that the Asia and Pacific region needs immediate measures both structural and nonstructural in order to adapt to climate change. The discussions elaborate on issues related to agriculture, water resources, and natural resources management, which are some of the most vital sectors for the region from environmental, social, and economic perspectives.

Although the policies and measures discussed in the book are specific to the Asia and Pacific region, the key findings will be relevant to other regions as well, such as Africa and Latin America. Policymakers and researchers involved in the study of climate change adaptation will find this volume of great interest.
