AIACC Working Paper No. 23 - A Plan of Action to Support Climate Change Adaptation through Scientific Capacity, Knowledge and Research
This paper is concerned with how to support climate change adaptation through scientific capacity, knowledge and inquiry. It highlight some of the key lessons for climate change adaptation from scientific research and assessment. It then lays out the priorities for an adaptation science agenda that would be targeted at the needs of adaptation planning, decision-making and implementation. It proposes a number of principles that should underlie implementation of an adaptation science agenda (Neil Leary, AIACC, 2004).
