Summary of APAN Capacity Building Activities, 2010-2015

Commissioned Report

In support of APAN’s broad mission to “build climate change resilient and sustainable human systems, ecosystems and economies” in Asia-Pacific, the Ministry of the Environment, Japan (MOEJ) has provided significant funding to run the network and contribute meaningfully to helping the region’s government officials adapt to climate change. A big component of this task is organizing and conducting capacity building activities, particularly targeted training workshops, which were conducted from 2010 to 2015 across 12 countries in Asia and the Pacific.

This paper provides a short summary of the lessons that came out of the numerous capacity building activities implemented over the five-year period.
