The mission of the Adaptation Knowledge Platform is to mainstream climate adaptation into development planning in the region as well as to ensure an effective two-way flow of information from researchers on ways to cope with changing climate to policy makers, and to communities who are battling the changes on the ground. The Adaptation Knowledge Platform is entering its third year since inception. The pinnacle of the year was the 2-day Asia Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum, held in October. It witnessed one of the largest gatherings of adaptation experts coming together to prioritize on integrating adaptation into planning in the region. The event saw the launch of the Adaptation Knowledge Platform web portal, which is knowledge based, launched to address the challenges facing the adaptation community. The Adaptation Knowledge Platform also launched e-communiqué, an electronic newsletter that updates the reader on the latest news on adaptation in the region.
