Kathmandu, Nepal; 03-05 July 2016: Rising sea-levels, severe droughts and floods, extreme weather events and the melting of the Himalaya glaciers are only a few consequences that the Asia-Pacific-Region is increasingly facing. Societies in South and South East Asia that already try to overcome poverty and underdevelopment are particularly affected. Many people who live on agriculture or settle in coastal or mountainous regions are at high risk. Weather-related crop failures or devastating meteorological events as a result of climate change threatens their livelihood. Especially the poorer population often do not have the capacity to adapt to the changing situations. Thus, promoting the adaptation to climate change is of high importance for the two sub-regions. Appropriate adaptation mechanisms can contribute to reduce the risk potential of countries and mitigate the risk of disastrous impacts.
