The recent IPCC report synthesizes the latest science on climate impacts and adaptation, with several regional insights for Asia and India. Despite a surge in research and praxis-based knowledge on adaptation, a critical barrier to implementing adaptation is synthesizing and assessing this burgeoning evidence. This talk will discuss a framework to assess the multidimensional feasibility of adaptation options across rural and urban areas, providing direction for climate policy and identifying knowledge gaps to further future climate research. It will also discuss key findings from the IPCC report on mapping the solution space (which brings together climate risks, adaptation, mitigation, and sustainable development).
