Scholars and experts from United States, Korea, Japan and Taiwan gathered this week in Tainan, Taiwan, for a the 'Advanced Training Workshop on Southeast Asia Regional Health Impacts and Adaptation under Climate Change' to discuss environmental and health issues resulting from climate change.

"Although there are uncertainties about future climate change, failure to invest in adaptation may leave communities and nations poorly prepared, thus increasing the probability of severe adverse consequences" said Dr. Kristie L. Ebi of the Carnegie Institution for Science.
