The aim of the project is to undertake a detailed analysis on the economic costs and benefits of climate change adaptation and mitigation measures with the view of enabling policy and decision makers in Malaysia to institute targeted interventions to address climate change impacts. It will be divided into three components i) Development of Economic Models ii) Database and iii) Policy Options. The economic models will assist the government in formulating coherent analysis especially in undertaking suitable mitigation and adaptation measures. The options will be also ranked in order of priority to ensure effective implementation and strengthen existing interdependencies and coordination between various ministries and agencies at the federal and state level to address climate change issues from a multi-sectoral point of view.
