Regional Workshop on Mainstreaming Climate Change Adaptation EIA in Asia

Aug 11th, 2011 | By | Category: Adaptation, Development and Climate Change, Environment, Opportunities, Upcoming Events

The workshop has an objective to build capacity for environmental impact assessment (EIA) practitioners in Asia to incorporate climate change impacts and adaptation in EIA processes. Workshop sessions aim to raise awareness and understanding on the implications of climate change in the context of development and project planning; explore opportunities and constraints in using EIA as a tool to enhance climate resilience of projects and plan for adaptation; and share experience from countries with more advanced practices in incorporating climate change considerations in EIA, using examples from real project cases.

The workshop is organized by the Asian Environmental Compliance and Enforcement Network (AECEN), with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in collaboration with the Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN).  As a side event to the Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum 2011 which will take place on 27-28 October 2011 at the United Nations Conference Center in Bangkok, the workshop targets adaptation practitioners who are planning to attend the Forum and also have interest in the EIA subject.
