“The Workshop for Capacity Building on Climate Change Impact Assessments and Adaptation Planning in the Asia-Pacific Region: Needs and Challenges for Designing and Implementing Climate Actions” was held on 1-2 October 2015 in Bangkok, Thailand. This was the first workshop in the series of events related to adaptation planning and climate change impact assessment by the Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN) and Ministry of the Environment of Japan (MOEJ), organized by the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES). The workshops were designed for a better understanding of the current situation, exchanging views and relevant information, and enhancing human resource development on climate change impact assessments and adaptation planning in the Asia-Pacific Region.

This workshop aimed to identify the status and needs of adaptation planning and climate change impact assessments at the national level. On Day I, national adaptation planning and related activities, as well as the needs and challenges were presented. On Day II, approaches and technologies related to climate change impact assessments, as well as resources and assistance for adaptation planning were discussed. Approximately 60 participants were invited to the workshop, including those who are engaged in the field of climate change adaptation (e.g., national government officials, policy makers, practitioners, and researchers) in the Asia‐Pacific region.
