About the report

This report presents the Summary Reports for the workshops held in the Philippines and China as part of the project, Vulnerability Assessment of Major Wetlands in the Asia-Pacific Region. The workshops were held in order to increase the awareness of local managers and decision makers about the potential impacts of climate change and sea level rise on coastal ecosystems. In addition, it was anticipated that the workshops would enable feedback on the draft Vulnerability Assessment reports for the two wetland sites under investigation: Olango Island, The Philippines, and Yellow River Delta, China.
