People in the Asia/Pacific region are profoundly affected by climate change. Home to more than half of humanity, the region straddles some of the world’s most geographically diverse and climate-exposed areas. Despite having contributed little to greenhouse gas emissions, mountain dwellers, island and other vulnerable communities face serious consequences for actions not of their making, and over which they have little influence. Cross-border climate-impacts that undermine human habitations — melting glaciers, rising sea-levels, degrading coral reefs, desertification, destruction of mangroves or eroding river systems — remain unaddressed without coordinated global responses. This publication outlines strategic arenas for transformation.
