Enabling Resilience for All: Avoiding the Worst Impacts

Building on the foundation of previous Forums, the 6th Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum will bring a sharper focus on learning from action towards climate resilience development. Resilience provides a unifying theme as it describes the desired end-point of adaptation, applicable to natural, human, economic and engineered systems. Accordingly, the 6th Forum is built around four “streams” focusing on (i) resilience of social and human systems, (ii) resilience of natural systems, (iii) resilience of industry and the built environment, and (iv) resilience of island communities. 

The inclusion of islands recognizes that Asia and the Pacific’s numerous and diverse island communities face particular challenges associated with economic shocks and natural hazards, and building resilience is often an existential task. The hosts of this year’s Forum - the Philippines and Palau – embody the diverse experiences of island communities and have compelling resilience stories to share, which many other countries in Asia and the Pacific might identify with and learn from.
