This portal site presents the international seminar which will be held on 17th November 2020 online, focused on "Sharing Interlocal Adaptation Lessons: Climate change adaptations and development in East and Southeast Asia". The impact of climate variability varies from region to region, and it is very significant to introduce adaptation measures in each region, exchange information, and obtain new knowledge, which will lead to the next action for our common future. Please join us!

The objectives of the workshop are as follows;

  • Build up a network among Southeast Asia Research Centers for information sharing, publishing research results, and policy briefs

  • Development a new adaptation research approach that considers the regional nature of Southeast Asia,
  • Presenting for sharing practical adaptation options permeated by society in each country/region,
  • Fostering young researchers and building a research base network among members

Presenters are from East and Southeast Asian countries, not only Japan and Vietnam but also the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand and China, representing an interdisciplinary and diverse group of researchers.
