ACCC Resource Manual : Reflections on Adaptation Planning Processes and Experiences


This Resource Manual reviews the approach, methods and lessons from the first phase of the Adapting to Climate Change in China (ACCC) project. ACCC brings together Chinese policy makers, research and policy institutions, as well as international organisations and experts, to develop practical approaches to climate change adaptation policy planning.

ACCC phase I (2009-2013) was designed as a “research-into-use” project, and focused on developing evidence-based climate change adaptation policy in China, at both the national and provincial levels.

ACCC phase II (2014-2017) is now building on this work and aims to mainstream climate change adaptation into development policies at national and provincial levels; to support the formulation and implementation of integrated Provincial Adaptation Plans across priority work sector; and share these experiences and lessons with other developing countries.
