East Asia environmental monitor 2007 : adapting to climage change (English)

The East Asia Environment Monitor on Adapting to Climate Change is the first regional report in the "Environment Monitor" series. It is also the first to focus entirely on climate change. It draws on a variety of sources and available scientific information to present a snapshot of trends and projections of the expected impacts of climate change, describe the vulnerability of the region to these impacts, and assess the likely major consequences for the region. Beyond the scenarios and their impacts on the region's sustainability, the Monitor looks at ways in which countries can better adapt to these impacts. The format is intended to be non-technical, easy to understand, and accessible to a wide audience. The annexes include a profile of the EAP region, useful links, and a reference list of selected World Bank publications relating to climate change.
