The Mekong ARCC Climate Change Impact and Adaptation (CCIA) Study for the Lower Mekong Basin (LMB) is a 10 month undertaking that sets about to:
1. Identify highly threatened and valuable agricultural, livestock, fisheries, and natural systems assets in the Lower Mekong Basin;
2. Translate data into useful GIS products that illustrate the vulnerability to climate change of key agricultural, aquatic, and other natural systems;
3. Provide a scientific evidence base for the selection of 3-5 focal areas within the basin where Mekong ARCC will undertake adaptation initiatives with communities
4. Recommend adaptation strategies to guide community planning at these sites; and
5. Inform policy makers, development specialists, private sector, and the global climate science community on the impacts of climate change on water resources, food security, livelihoods and ecosystem integrity in the Lower Mekong Basin.
Since April 2012, a team of more than 20 national and international Mekong ARCC scientists and researchers (see Annex 1) has been collecting and analyzing data on how climate change will impact agricultural production, fisheries, livestock and ecosystems in the Lower Mekong Basin.
Presented by Jeremy Carew-Reid, Mekong ARCC CCIA Study Leader, this PowerPoint provides key approaches and methods used in the Study.
