China: New programme in Salween-Mekong basin targets women’s adaptation to climate change – News – Professional Resources – PreventionWeb.net

A great example of trans-national collaboration on climate adaptation involving the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), based in Kathmandu, Nepal, and Kunming Institute of Botany (KIB) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences… supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).

Kunming, China – A new collaborative programme on climate change adaptation in the Mekong-Salween river basin of Yunnan Province, China was launched in Kunming, China on 27-28 March 2012. The programme will aim to fill knowledge gaps and, on the basis of the scientific evidence gathered, to make concrete proposals for enhancing people’s adaptation to climate change through policy and practice. The programme will have a particular focus on women’s adaptation, as women and men often suffer the impacts of climate change in different ways, and women tend to be less represented in policy and decision making.
