About this book

This document presents preliminary results from the vulnerability and adaptation assessment research of 13 countries in the African, Asian-Pacific, Eastern European and Latin American regions. Their assessments address impacts in the agriculture, grasslands, forest, water resources, and coastal resources sectors. This work will not only fill gaps in the understanding of the potential impacts of climate change and the effectiveness of adaptation strategies, it will also help develop a consensus on appropriate methodologies and needs for refinement to currently available methodologies.
