Conference Proceeding

The Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) in collaboration with Practical Action Nepal along with other research partners in the Gangetic Basin organized a workshop to share the proficiencies on the area of effective adaptation to climate change and develop guidelines. Likewise, to make the guidelines as wide as possible, the experiences from Mekong basin were also shared in the workshop. The workshop primarily focused to develop the guidelines targeted to the policy makers, stakeholders and the specialists who are engaged in the climate change adaptation at local level.
The two day workshop addresses the issue of the effectiveness of adaptation to climate change by research institutions, governmental and non-governmental organizations who have been working in the sector. By using various methods that have helped provide with the ability to implement a project from the very initial stage, the techniques used so far are still fragmented. The workshop provided a platform for researchers, government and nongovernmental organizations to come together and share their learnings about the adaptation effectiveness and develop the guidelines which will again be shared to the adaptation community.
