The project entitled “Scientific Capacity Development of the Trainers and Policy Makers for Climate Change Adaptation Planning in Asia and the Pacific”, funded by the Asia Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN) under the ‘CAPaBLE’ programme, was implemented as a part of Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN) activities that aimed at enhancing the capacity of national and regional institutions to support adaptation actions. Under this project, three workshops were conducted in January, March and August 2011 with the participation of all project collaborators representing different training institutes, universities, and ministries of agriculture in five project‐targeted countries (Bangladesh, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Mongolia and Nepal); and a series of national level questionnaire surveys were conducted as a part of training needs assessment. While the first and second workshops (meetings) focused on reviewing the training needs assessment, the last workshop was focused on the drafting the training modules for their respective countries which were then finalized and submitted as the final country reports. The project received the technical expertise from Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and Asia Institute of Technology (AIT).
