The Policy Roundtable was jointly organized by the Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA), the Philippine Rice Research Institute of the Department of Agriculture, and the Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation, with the support of the University of Hohenheim's Food Security Center.

As part of SEARCA's policy roundtable series on various topics in agricultural and rural development, the 12th Policy Roundtable session was developed in order to achieve the following objectives:

  1. To share knowledge and experiences on various facets of agricultural insurance in Southeast Asia;
  2. To identify key issues and challenges in agricultural insurance to enhance resilience to climate change;
  3. To explore possible partnerships on research, knowledge management, capacity building, and other activities; and
  4. To identify policy directions and recommendations for an enabling environment toward an improved agricultural insurance program.

This manual is aimed at providing a knowledge base on climate change, especially catered for teachers and trainers. The manual will introduce the basics of climate change – what is it, why is it happening, what are the projected impacts, and what can be done. It has a strong focus on the science of climate change which is essential in providing a better understanding of the broader picture – why climate change is happening and how to better address the challenge.

Also, this manual aims to bring climate change closer to the youth by providing a local context. It explains the observed and projected climatic changes as well as the vulnerabilities of the Philippines. It recognizes the importance of engaging the local government in educating the youth. Their participation and support in terms of providing information related to climate change in the city or municipality is important in order to better understand the direct impacts of climate change to their communities.

Lastly, this manual could aid in catalyzing youth action towards a low-carbon and climate-resilient future. It provides options for mitigation and adaptation actions that can be adopted by the youth, as well as youth-led initiatives in the Philippines and around the world. This is crucial because the real challenge goes beyond raising awareness, but inducing behavioral changes in order to truly address climate change.

adapting“Adapting and Living below 2o C: bridging gaps in policies and practices” call for harnessing more local involvement in integrated adaptation planning, providing access to relevant sources of financing and technologies, provisioning coherent capacity building, involving private sector, and tapping knowledge networks including the Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN) for replicable adaptation measures and collective learning to support effective and inclusive adaptation planning and implementation. Over 900 participants including policymakers, scientists, donors, youth, and representatives from over 50 countries discussed opportunities and agreed to collaborate on solutions, integrated approaches, and extended an invitation to new partners especially the private, technology and finance sectors, that could help address the gaps in financing, technology, and capacity building. Inspired by the sincere commitment of the host government to inform Sri Lanka’s future climate actions with the Forum outcomes, many countries, partners and participants expressed their commitment to take on the messages from the 5th Forum and turn them into action, for a climate-resilient Asia Pacific region.-Colombo, Sri Lanka October 2016
