Accelerating Adaptation in Asia

As of: January 2022

In Asia, economic growth, rapid urbanisation and infrastructure development are contributing to increasing land degradation. At the same time, the consequences of climate change are becoming increasingly devastating. The project is therefore initiating a paradigm shift in hydraulic engineering. To this end, it is developing the platform "Building with Nature in Asia" to mobilise public and private stakeholders and enable the scaling up of this approach to climate change adaptation. In this way, 15 climate-resilient landscapes are created that support the long-term resilience of cities and settlements along vulnerable Asian coasts and rivers.
