FAQs
What are the aims of the platform?

The Adaptation Platform is helping countries in Asia adapt to the challenges of climate change at local, national and regional levels through a process of capacity building and strengthening. Broadly speaking, there are three general aims: to establish a regional system for sharing of knowledge on adaptation to climate change, to generate new knowledge about it, and to promote the application of new and existing knowledge about climate change in Asia.

Who will benefit from this programme?

It is expected that many people will benefit from this platform. The immediate beneficiaries are most likely to be civil servants, researchers and development workers who will be equipped with the knowledge, tools and opportunities to promote climate adaptation strategies in their work. Eventually, the beneficiary pool will be very wide as climate knowledge is applied for the public good in diverse areas of work.

How are governments in Asia involved in this programme?

Government agencies and individual civil servants are able to share experiences, access information and get in touch with counterparts working in comparable situations in other countries through the joint training, research and networking activities offered by the platform.

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.

I’m already undertaking research on adaptation to climate change in my university programme. What can the platform offer me?

The platform offers ‘still-warm’ findings from the field - the most current feedback from the people working at the frontline of change and adaptation. At the crossroads of the disciplines, there are no experts. Instead you will find people who are marking out the parameters of this new and rapidly expanding field of study, and who may be potential collaborators and mentors in the future.
