Under the Weather and the Rising Tide Adapting to a Changing Climate in Asia and the Pacific
Asian Development Bank | June 2009
Many countries of Asia and the Pacific are at great risk from the anticipated impacts of human-induced climate change. Also at risk are many of the hard-won gains in poverty reduction, and the attainment of the long-term development goals. This booklet describes a number of adaptation strategies and actions being pursued by ADB, its country partners, and the international community. These strategies and actions reflect several important adaptation considerations for developing member countries, such as: country ownership, partnership synergies, integrating disaster risk reduction and climate risk management, and a no-regret approach. Also highlighted are emerging trends in climate adaptation strategies, including the blending of mitigation and adaptation, disaster risk management and climate adaptation synergies, community adaptation tools, and applied downscaled modeling.
