Given the reality of climate change, India and the other South Asian countries need to begin to identify the best strategies to adapt to climate change. In order to do so, we need an understanding of the impacts of climate change on different sectors, the strategies available to reduce these impacts and the costs of adaptation. Even as we examine issues related to climate adaptation, we need to also understand how the other drivers of change interact with climatic changes and increase the economic vulnerability of different communities. The objective of this workshop is to tease out and identify some of the important issues that need to be more fully understood in the area of climate change adaptation. The workshop seeks to identify a set of research, training and policy priorities.
