This presentation for the Mekong ARCC project was given by ICEM at the Final Workshop in Bangkok - held in March 2013. The presentation gives climate change vulnerability and adaptation assessment for capture fisheries and aquaculture in the Lower Mekong Basin. It presents the climate change variables affecting fisheries and provides some adaptation options.
Fisheries and aquaculture are vitally important for food and livelihoods in the Mekong Region. Virtually all rural families are involved in fishing at some time of the year and small-scale capture fisheries remain important for livelihoods of rural families. Climate change is set to challenge these traditional ways of life in fundamental ways.
