The Korea Adaptation Center for Climate Change (KCCC) / Korea Environment Institute (KEI) held a “Regional Training on Climate Change Adaptation and Evaluation” on 30 September-3 October 2014 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The training was hosted by Ministry of Environment, Korea, and co-organized by the Korea Adaptation Center for Climate Change (KACCC) / Korea Environment Institute (KEI) and RRC.AP together with other core technical partners of the Asia-Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN), in conjunction with the 4th Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum 2014.

This training aimed to improve the capacity of national and local authorities, practitioners and stakeholders in their adaptation planning for climate change and the evaluation of their current planning and implementing tools. The specific objectives addressed were to:

  • Provide general concepts on impacts of climate change, vulnerabilities and risk assessment and climate change adaptation.
  • Introduce various evaluation tools and case studies.
  • Provide guidance on how evaluation can help in mainstreaming and integrating adaptation into national planning processes and risk assessment.
  • Provide guidance on the inclusion of evaluation tools into adaptation planning and obtain relevant feedback from practitioners and stakeholders about their local insights on the matter.

This training brought together about 30 participants from several Asia-Pacific countries, mainly coming from national or sub-national government authorities working on enhancing capacity on climate change adaptation, as well as practitioners involved in relevant sectors of the adaptation evaluation process. Sessions were facilitated by experts from the Korea Environment Institute and other organizations such as the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD), the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), and the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), among others.
