Climate change impacts on natural and human systems are increasing. Often affecting fragile economic, social and political systems, climate change is considered to be a serious ‘threat multiplier’. In this document, the risks on these existing systems are understood as climate fragility risks (CFRs).

This report – “Asia-Pacific landscape transformations – Solutions for sustainability” – was motivated by the stark and rapid changes in landscapes that can be observed across the region and their consequences.

This report demonstrates that changes in consumption patterns and dominant lifestyles are a critical and integral part of the solutions package to addressing climate change.

This project, entitled “Assessment of Climate-Induced Long-term Water Availability in the Ganges Basin and the Impacts on Energy Security in South Asia”, is funded by the Asian-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN).

In this volume, seek to highlight how the sustainable use of biodiversity as practiced in well-managed SEPLS can contribute to effective area-based conservation of biodiversity.

The objective of this report is to establish global lifestyle carbon footprint targets and examine the average consumption and footprint patterns of case countries from lifestyle perspectives.

This paper aims to assess the potential of blockchain applications in the financial, business, public and climate change sectors to contribute to the realisation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Around two third of SDGs are found to be strongly connected with blockchain applications, especially the SDGs 8, 9, 10 and 16.

The 2030 Agenda, with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), 169 targets, and 232 indicators, agreed by all countries, are intended to “transform the world”. This report examines the ability of the SDGs to actually trigger this transformation and to suggest some key actions to make the SDGs more transformative.

This paper outlines the Talanoa Dialogue and the Global Stocktake, with a view to seeking their mutual implications.

In this paper, it has been made clear that regional cooperation has a significant role to play in addressing the transboundary impacts of climate change in Asia.
