This project sought to build national capacity in Vietnam and Bhutan to make biodiversity laws, policies, and management more adaptable to climate change. A National Dialogue was organized in each country to bring together scientists, policymakers, academics, resource managers, and civil society groups to identify climate change impacts, prioritize biodiversity adaptation needs, and discuss steps for developing and implementing a plan of action. Five representatives of each country attended both workshops, in order to facilitate regional exchange and cooperation around climate change adaptation measures. The Dialogues were guided by two publications on climate change adaptation released by ELI and its partners in August 2011 (though not prepared under the current grant). The first publication, a Resource Manual on Legal and Policy Tools to Adapt Biodiversity Management to Climate Change, presents an overview of climate change adaptation, introduces a set of legal and policy tools to incorporate adaptive management principles into legal frameworks governing biodiversity, and applies these tools in four areas of natural resource management. The second publication, Strategic Options for Adapting Biodiversity Management to Climate Change, condenses the discussion for policymakers and presents policy options that reference the tools and approaches introduced in the Resource Manual.
