The workshop will aim to couple the efforts of the research community in the state with the needs and experience of policy- makers to enhance the development of evidence-based policies to implement innovative research more rapidly and effectively for local climate action in the state.The workshop will provide an excellent opportunity to researchers and policy makers to understand the science of climate change modellings/ projections, impacts of climate change on water, agriculture, natural ecosystems and forests, vulnerability, and adaptation strategies.



To maintain constant sharing of ideas between researchers and policy makers, a continuous dialogue and experience sharing is required as part of adaptation policy assessment. Evidence- based planning is valued by government officials most when there is actual and effective implementation of research outcomes. In practice, this often implies that governmental policies and plans need be scoped and scaled down to meet the available budget, and thus be achievable.

Key Guiding Questions for the workshop


What are the best practices for climate science communication to support understanding of climate change impacts, vulnerabilities and options for decision making on adaptation, mitigation, loss, and damage?


What can be done to strengthen the understanding of: climate change impacts at 1.5°C and higher levels of warming; adaptation and mitigation options and their costs; and associated co-benefits for society?


What can be done and where are the synergies to improve access to data and information to close knowledge gaps at regional and national level to scale up climate action?


How can the research community optimize its support for the national stocktake?
