Third Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum

The forum aims to assist government, community and business decision-makers at all levels to develop appropriate climate change and development strategies and to build their capacity to adapt to a changing climate. The forum will focus on the overall theme "Mainstreaming Adaptation into Development" and will include four sub-themes: adaptation strategies; critical and neglected groups; adaptation in sectors and systems; and knowledge management for adaptation. The co-organizers are the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), the Institute for Global Environment Strategies (IGES), the Regional Resource Centre for Asia and the Pacific (RRC.AP), and the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI). It will precede the Asia-Pacific Training for Policymakers and Practitioners on Migration, Environment, Climate Change and Adaptation.
