CLIMATE VULNERABILITY OF EAST ASIA: A Regional Derivative Analysis from Climate Vulnerability Monitor 3

Event: Regional Workshop on Climate Vulnerability Monitor: Focus on East Asia
Date: 16 Dec 2022, Hayama, Japan (online)
CVM3 East Asia

East Asia has unique regional demographic and socioeconomic characteristics that put the adaptation in the region with more public good benefits. The findings of the Climate Vulnerability Monitor 3 should be read from the perspective of the region's unique characteristics. The findings affect the region by bringing trends that the region has not witnessed so far and preparedness is needed. The findings mean immediate action for the policymakers and/or financial and economic planners in the region. The region can best apply the findings from the CVM3 for strengthening adaptation planning. Future iterations of the monitor could be improved by
bringing coastal vulnerability with a sectoral focus.
