A practitioners' and policy-makers' exchange on climate change adaptation in agriculture was held at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) in Pathumthani from 30 August to 1 September, 2010.
The objective of this exchange was to share practical examples of adapting to climate change in agriculture with participants from seven South and South East Asian countries. The three-days exchange was attended by participants, mostly  field practitioners and policy makers from agricultural departments, and resource persons from countries such as the Philippines, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Vietnam, Myanmar, Thailand and Bangladesh. The participants and resource persons shared their experiences and lessons from case studies and current research and development projects which focused on resilience of agriculture systems to climate change.
