 A three-day long workshop, ‘South Asia Media workshop on adaptation to climate change’ was held by Asia Pacific Adaptation Network conducted a mid-term monitoring of training needs assessment (TNA) in five countries, including Bangladesh, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Mongolia, and Nepal, from May 18 to June 22. This is one of the activities under the APAN project titled “Scientific capacity development of trainers and policy-makers for climate change adaptation planning in the Asia and Pacific”. The missions (1) monitor the current progress and results of TNA in the project countries, (2) help country partners overcome difficulties or limitations they face while conducting TNA, and (3) guide the preparation of Training Module Design Workshop, which will be organized in Bangkok from August 10 to 12. The monitoring missions showed that the countries have nearly completed the TNA, and some of them have begun preparing the TNA report, which is due for submission to APAN by mid-July.
