 A three-day long workshop, ‘South Asia Media workshop on adaptation to climate change’ was held by Asia Pacific Adaptation Network conducted a mid-term monitoring of training needs assessment (TNA) in five countries, including Bangladesh, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Mongolia, and Nepal, from May 18 to June 22. This is one of the activities under the APAN project titled “Scientific capacity development of trainers and policy-makers for climate change adaptation planning in the Asia and Pacific”. The missions (1) monitor the current progress and results of TNA in the project countries, (2) help country partners overcome difficulties or limitations they face while conducting TNA, and (3) guide the preparation of Training Module Design Workshop, which will be organized in Bangkok from August 10 to 12. The monitoring missions showed that the countries have nearly completed the TNA, and some of them have begun preparing the TNA report, which is due for submission to APAN by mid-July.

FAQs
What happens at the end of the three-year programme?

This field is developing so rapidly that it is hard to predict with certainty what will happen at the end of three years. Furthermore, many countries in Asia are experiencing such dynamic economic and social changes that in turn have impacts on how climate change is being experienced and addressed. Apart from the immediate benefits generated during the three years of operation, the Adaptation Platform will contribute to a substantial repository of knowledge and experience that will continue to be used by governments and the private sector in the future. It is expected that there will be ongoing input to the platform from those who have gained considerable expertise in climate adaptation strategies through this round of programme activities.

Does the platform replicate work that is already being done by others?

No, it does not. While there are a number of networks and partnerships for action on climate change, what the platform offers is a unique space specifically devoted to learning about adaptation strategies as they are being undertaken. The platform is solution-focused, enabling professional and technical staff to meet, network and share information and experiences on common sets of challenges in this region.

What can the platform offer to business people?

The platform offers many opportunities to access new research information directly from universities, institutes and practitioners, and to feed into the agenda for new research to be undertaken. Platform events will offer networking opportunities and the chance to share with others successful strategies and lessons learned in business sectors such as agriculture, transport, and construction.
