In rural developing areas, women are considered as the main consumers of water—whether it be for cooking, drinking, washing, bathing, sanitation, or family hygiene at the local level (Aureli and Brelet 2004; Harris et al. 2017; Ivens 2008). Furthermore, a case study in Bangladesh indicated that women regularly use water for domestic purposes, farming, and other daily sustenance activities. As a result, women are likely to face a higher exposure to water-related pollution issues and waterborne diseases (UN Water 2006).…
Issues related to demand on deeper understanding on climate change adaptation ability, inadequate number of social studies, and the lack of studies on specific groups have prompted this study to assess the adaptation toward climate change among islanders small-scale fishermen (ISFM) in Malaysia. At the same time, it also intends to identify and rank order the aspect of adaptation abilities among ISFM in different areas/zones and to match the recommendation for the periodical remedial measure based on a different aspect of adaptation abilities. A…

The Upper Ma River basin located in Son La and Dien Bien provinces in the northwestern region of Vietnam has a total area of 6,688 km2. It is a typical river basin in Vietnam, a transboundary with variable flow regime and topography, and has high population pressure in its mountainous region. It is also considered as one of the most disaster-prone regions, suffering from typhoons, tropical storms, drought, landslides, soil erosion, and forest fires. In the study area, land use…

Polillo Islands in Quezon Province is one of the key biodiversity areas (KBA) identified as priority sites for conservation in the Philippines. It is home to globally important species including the Gray’s monitor lizard (Varanus olivaceus), the Philippine cockatoo (Cacatua haematuropygia), the Philippine warty pig (Sus philippensis), and the Philippine rusa (Hampson et al. 2000).
Vietnam, an agriculture-based country, presents a typical example of food production—climate change paradox. Agriculture is a major contributor to the national and household economies, accounting for approximately 20.0 percent of Vietnam’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), 11.9 percent of total export value, and generating about 67.7 percent employment in 2015. Agricultural growth is, thus, seen as a means to ensure national food security and a tool to generate income. However, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment or MONRE (2015) notes…
For over a decade, the ASEAN-Swiss Partnership on Social Forestry and Climate Change (ASFCC) has supported ASEAN’s pursuit of food security through sustainable, efficient, and effective use of land, forest, water, and aquatic resources and by minimizing the risks and impacts of climate change. The central element of the ASFCC program, which concluded in February 2020, was its support for the ASEAN Working Group on Social Forestry (AWG-SF) and its strategic priorities and plans of action. The ASFCC Strategic Reserve Fund (ASRF) was then designed…
