Welcome to the Adaptation Forum 2010

The Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum (Adaptation Forum) will provide opportunity to share practices, knowledge and experiences on mainstreaming adaptation to climate change into development planning in Asia and the Pacific.

The event presents a venue through which tools and mechanisms that support the process of adapting to climate change and current findings from frontline development and adaptation challenges can be showcased. The participatory format of the Adaptation Forum will include plenary and keynote sessions, panel discussions, business roundtables, thematic side events, market place, photo and poster exhibitions. The sessions will be facilitated by eminent climate scientists, adaptation experts and development planners from the region.

The Adaptation Forum will

  • Stimulate regional knowledge sharing and facilitate networking among participants to maximize synergy;
  • Add value to existing country/regional level knowledge platforms and activities to enhance and support cooperation and coordination;
  • Link local level adaptation initiatives with those at national and regional level.

The Target Group

The Adaptation Forum aims at gathering 200-300 adaptation practitioners at regional, national, and sub-national level. These could include government representatives from various line ministries, researchers, practitioners, NGOs, international organizations, regional intergovernmental bodies, media and the private sector.
