Assessments of Impacts and Adaptation to Climate Change in Multiple Regions and Sectors (AIACC)

Project Summary

Assessment of climate change impacts and adaptation options for the most vulnerable regions and sectors in developing countries will be targeted through an open process on scientific merit. Forty to fifty individual research activities are planned. The targeted regions and sectors represent gaps in the current assessments. This project will develop capacity to address these gaps through training, technology transfer, and interaction with international assessment teams.
