Practitioners and policy-makers' exchange on climate change adaptation in agriculture was held at the Asian Institute of Technology’s (AIT) conference facilities in Pathumthani, Thailand, from 30 August to 1 September 2010.

The objective of this exchange was to transfer knowledge of practical examples on climate change adaptation in agriculture to participants from seven South and South East Asian countries. The three-day exchange gathered 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. 

During the exchange, the participants also explored on the need to have country specific information and identify the regional knowledge priorities on climate change adaptation in the agriculture sector. In this way, by bringing together a core group of researchers, practitioners and policy makers from seven developing countries in South and South East Asia, this practitioners' exchange enabled the transfer of practical examples, technologies and case studies of agricultural climate change adaptation measures between countries.
