The Yangtze River Basin Climate Change Vulnerability and Adaptation Report was organized by WWF and compiled by over 20 contributors from the Institute of Geography and Sciences and Natural Resources Research, China Academy of Sciences (CAS), Institute of Applied Ecology of the CAS, Institute of Mountain Hazards and Environment of the CAS, the China Meteorological Administration (CMA), and Fudan University. The substantial research that went into the Yangtze River Basin Climate Change Vulnerability and Adaptation Report was made possible by HSBC’s support of WWF’s Yangtze Programme, through the global HSBC Climate Partnership. The HSBC Climate Partnership is a 5-year global partnership including HSBC, The Climate Group, Earthwatch Institute, The Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, and WWF to reduce the impacts of climate change on people, forests, water and cities.
