adapting“Adapting and Living below 2o C: bridging gaps in policies and practices” call for harnessing more local involvement in integrated adaptation planning, providing access to relevant sources of financing and technologies, provisioning coherent capacity building, involving private sector, and tapping knowledge networks including the Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN) for replicable adaptation measures and collective learning to support effective and inclusive adaptation planning and implementation. Over 900 participants including policymakers, scientists, donors, youth, and representatives from over 50 countries discussed opportunities and agreed to collaborate on solutions, integrated approaches, and extended an invitation to new partners especially the private, technology and finance sectors, that could help address the gaps in financing, technology, and capacity building. Inspired by the sincere commitment of the host government to inform Sri Lanka’s future climate actions with the Forum outcomes, many countries, partners and participants expressed their commitment to take on the messages from the 5th Forum and turn them into action, for a climate-resilient Asia Pacific region.-Colombo, Sri Lanka October 2016

For this particular volume, due attention is given to climate change adaptation, mitigation, and resiliency because of its negative effects on the agricultural sector. Under SEARCA’s Tenth Five-Year Plan focused on Inclusive and Sustainable Agricultural and Rural Development (ISARD), climate change is flagged as a priority concern as it hinders the sector’s ability to provide food for a growing population that continues to struggle with poverty and hunger.

Climate change is a major global concern that greatly affects people, including their source of living. In 2010, the Asian Development Bank reported that Vietnam is one of the five countries most severely affected by climate change. About 70 percent of the country's total population lives along coastal areas and in islands. This study aimed to (1) evaluate the impacts of climate change on aquaculture in Phu Vang district (Thua Thien Hue province, Vietnam), and (2) develop a climate change adaptation model for aquaculture. Data on impact of climate change to aquaculture production were gathered through participatory rural appraisal tools, while spatial changes in water quality were determined through Geographic Information System (GIS). Experimental polyculture models were set up in the five study-site communes to determine the aquaculture practices that could be disseminated to small farmers. It was found out that Phu Vang had suffered heavy losses from climate change brought about by a combination of droughts and prolonged heat waves, and cold weather that lasted longer. Floods and typhoons have likewise occurred with stronger intensities, and tide amplitude has changed drastically. All these affected agricultural activities, especially aquaculture, which is considered as one of the most vulnerable sectors to climate change impacts. As a result, many households shifted from intensive to extensive culture, and some even left their ponds for other jobs. The limited understanding and capacity of people on climate change aggravated the situation, affecting their ability to respond and mitigate negative impacts. Water quality, specifically for aquaculture, was also affected as a result of rising temperature, prolonged droughts, rainfall, flooding, and salinization, which in turn reduced productivity and yield. Meanwhile, polyculture models of aquaculture implemented for this study brought high economic returns, and could be promising to replicate in various communes of Phu Vang district. The following are the primary recommendations to mitigate climate change impact in aquaculture and to facilitate sustainable livelihood for coastal people: capacitate communities and government in climate change adaptation and mitigation; expand promising aquaculture practices, area, infrastructure, and marketing of produce; and implement policies to mitigate damages of climate change to aquaculture and the community as a whole.
