Southeast Asia is potentially one of the more vulnerable regions to climate change impacts, as many of the countries in the region have relatively low levels of development, weak infrastructure, long coastlines, and a significant percentage of the population is still dependent on agriculture, a sector which is more climate-sensitive. Recognising this, developing countries in the region have been vociferous in their support for adaptation. This Alert looks at three countries – Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines – to examine the place of adaptation in government policy.
