Review International Adaptation Strategies

In preparation of the Mekong Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan (MASAP), the Mekong River Commission Climate Change and Adaptation Initiative (MRC CCAI) reviewed several international adaptation strategies to learn from their process and their implementation, and to derive recommendations for the MASAP. At the basin level, adaptation strategies of four basins were selected for review, including the Nile, Danube, Rhine and Neman. At the regional level, adaptation strategies of four regional cooperation organisations were reviewed – the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) adaptation strategy, the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa-East African Community-Southern African Development Community (COMESA-EAC-SADC) Climate Change Adaptation Strategy for the water sector, the European Adaptation Strategy, and the Amazonian Strategic Cooperation Agenda.
The analysis in the report is based on the framework and steps for the development of an adaptation strategy, which is derived from the UNECE Guidance on Water and Adaptation to Climate Change.
