Full report of the South Asia team
This report presents South Asia-wide review of climate change adaptation research, intended to identify present knowledge, gaps on adaptation and application including the practice of research. Unlike the case of China, which is one nation, South Asia involves seven nations: Nepal, India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.
This scoping study makes a distinction between planned and autonomous adaptation strategies including ways in which social and physical infrastructure enable adaptation (Synthesis Report). This chosen framework has helped to identify gaps and research issues in the course of the study. This report explores how groups in the vulnerable areas of the region are likely to experience stresses from impacts of climate change.
