Three Concepts That Should Be Addressedto Build A Climate Resilient Asia Pacific• Impacts• Vulnerability• Adaptation andDisaster RiskReduction•Sea Level Rise•Temperature Changes•Increase Severity and Frequency of Storms•Economic (e.g. economic growth)•Social (ethnic people, women, children, poor)•Biophysical (infrastructure, natural systems)•Economic (e.g. economic growth)•Social (ethnic people, women, children, poor)•Biophysical (infrastructure, natural systems)
