Our study assessed climate change impacts on and vulnerability of natural (forest, water) and social systems in the watershed. In addition, we identified potentialadaptation options for these systems. This paper presents an approach on how to analyze sectoral adaptation options by looking at the trade-offs between them. Themain target of this paper is policy makers at the local and national level in the Philippines. The approach proposed here requires minimal technical training andcould be readily used by the target audience.
