VIENTIANE, LAO PDR -- At the kick-off Team Scoping & Baseline Session during 7-10 May 2012, in Vientiane, Lao PDR, USAID Mekong ARCC conducted side interviews with key experts who play important roles in the Study. They were interviewed to elaborate on project objectives, expected results, modeling climate, and innovative techniques of the Lower Mekong Climate Impact and Adaptation Study.
The Lower Mekong Climate Change Impact and Adaptation Study is an initial task of the USAID Mekong ARCC Project. This study lays the foundation for the whole USAID Mekong ARCC project by providing the scientific evidence base for identifying highly vulnerable and valuable agricultural, fisheries and natural systems assets in the Mekong Basin, defining adaptation options and priorities, and selecting field demonstration sites for enhancing existing adaptation, and demonstrating new adaptation strategies.
