The Climate Change Adaptation Project Preparation Facility for Asia and the Pacific (ADAPT Asia-Pacific), is a newly launched program of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Regional Development Mission for Asia (RDMA). Starting in October 2011, the five-year, USD 17 million regional program has the objective to help governments in Asia and the Pacific accelerate their access to the existing pool of international climate change adaptation funds.In order to catalyze contacts between adaptation project proponents and adaptation funding sources, ADAPT Asia-Pacific will convene a forum annually to bring together key stakeholders including government officials, fund managers, multilateral financial institutions, national project proponents etc. The ADAPT Asia-Pacific 1st Annual Forum will also assess capacity gaps among regional countries in identifying and preparing adaptation projects.

This forum will begin with a welcome reception in the evening of March 13 at the Siam City Hotel. Main forum sessions will take place at the Siam Kempinski Hotel commencing on March 14 and concluding with a half-day session on March 15.

 The Forum has three main objectives:
• Raise awareness and understanding of potential adaptation project proponents in Asia of available climate funding resources and the requirements for accessing these funds;
• Identify priority capacity gaps and country needs in preparing climate change adaptation project proposals;
• Introduce the ADAPT Asia-Pacfic project and its potential role in facilitating country access to the adaptation funds.
