APAN (Asia Pacific Adaptation Network)
The Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN) is a regional program for sharing knowledge about adapting to climate change and building the capacity of governments and organizations to implement adaptation measures.
This includes equipping governments and organizations with technologies and finance in support of climate change adaptation and integrating it into policies, strategies and plans.
As a ‘network of networks,’ APAN functions in a collaborative approach, working to effectively manage and disseminate diverse climate change adaptation knowledge and meet on-the-ground demands of climate change practitioners. It holds regular meetings throughout the region.
The website explains the organization and its membership, lists news and proceedings and contains an archive of relevant documents.
APAN activities are carried out by the Institute of Global Environmental strategies (IGES), Regional Resource Centre for Asia and the Pacific (RRC.AP) located at Asian Institute for Technology (AIT), and Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) representing two programmes coordinated by The UNEP Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (ROAP) and merged as one programme in 2011.
