The Eighth Roundtable Discussion on Climate Change Adaptation in the GMS

7th August 2015

Building on the seventh roundtable held in June, partners at this eighth roundtable discussed analytical tools for assessing basin-scale climate change vulnerability and looked at the processes involved and lessons learnt from application in the GMS. 

The objective was to identify concrete activities to jointly advance the design of basin-level assessment approaches and tools, including an effective engagement process, and trial the advanced design through the roundtable partners’ respective initiatives.

This roundtable discussion was co-organized by the GMS Environment Operations Center and the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies, Bangkok Regional Center – which serves as the regional hub for the Asia Pacific Adaptation Network – and the US Forest Service. 

Presentations are available for download below.
