A Region at Risk: The Human Dimensions of Climate Change in Asia and the Pacific

Asia and the Pacific continues to be exposed to climate change impacts. Home to the majority of the world’s poor, the population of the region is particularly vulnerable to those impacts. Unabated warming could largely diminish previous achievements of economic development and improvements, putting the future of the region at risk.

During Climate Week 2017, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) will highlight the most recent projections pertaining to climate change and climate change impacts in Asia and the Pacific, and the consequences of these changes to human systems, particularly for developing countries. ADB will also highlight gaps in the existing knowledge and identify avenues for continued research.

This event is open to the public. Please RSVP here
