Highlights

  • The farming households’ adaptive capacity level to flooding is generally moderate.
  • The low adaptive capacity level of farming households is mainly caused by low level of information resources, financial resources, and livelihood diversity.
  • The decision to practice adaptation and the number of adaptation practices used are not associated with the adaptive capacity level.
  • Improving the livelihood diversity and physical resources of farming households in Mabitac, Philippines will significantly contribute to an increased adaptive capacity level.

Highlights

  • Several promising revenue mechanisms in the tourism industry of SIDS exist that can be tapped to fund the industry’s CCA.
  • Private adaptation financing initiatives presumed to be cost-effective and feasible for the tourism industry include investing in water efficiency and pooling resources in a targeted fund, which are then allocated by need.
  • The biggest barriers to engage the tourism industry in SIDS to fund its own CCA are the government’s assumed economic dependency on tourism, consumer expectations and demands, and assumptions about costs and benefits.
  • Varying incentive structures and price sensitivity suggest that government frameworks are needed to create substantive and effective action.

cover-cover-region-riskRecent regional climate change projections have consequences for human systems, particularly for developing countries in Asia and the Pacific.

Asia and the Pacific continues to be exposed to climate change impacts. Home to the majority of the world’s poor, the population of the region is particularly vulnerable to those impacts. Unabated warming could largely diminish previous achievements of economic development and improvements, putting the future of the region at risk.

The report discusses the most recent projections pertaining to climate change and climate change impacts in Asia and the Pacific, and the consequences of these changes to human systems, particularly for developing countries. It also highlights gaps in the existing knowledge and identifies avenues for continued research.

This report is the outcome of a collaboration of ADB with the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK).
