New Reports from the ADB

Climate Change and Impacts on Agriculture in Asia and the Pacific

The ADB-sponsored agriculture sector study, carried out by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), uses predictions of global climate models to develop scenarios to 2050 for Asia and to derive implications for food security. The study recommends cost-effective adaptation responses that could build greater climate resilience into the agriculture sector in Asia and the Pacific.

Climate Change and Migration in Asia and the Pacific

Climate change will influence patterns of migration and human settlements-increasing migration in already highly populated areas in Asia and the Pacific. The climate change and migration study was drafted in cooperation with researchers at the University of Adelaide.The draft study discusses how climate change is likely to influence population displacement, migration and settlement patterns and examines how this will impact development in five sub-regions of Asia and the Pacific.
