This project aimed to build research capacity in the climate change sector in Thailand and Lao PDR. The activities include training workshops and research exercises practice using case studies. Over 60 scientists, academics, government officials, press and local stakeholders were involved in the process.

Using a modeling approach, research capacity was developed on the understanding of climate change scenarios, hydrological and crop yield analysis. In addition, field assessments, which involved direct local stakeholder participation was conducted in both countries. The result from this activity was not only research capacity developed but also increased awareness among policy maker and the public on climate change issues. It also created output for project Assessments of Impacts and Adaptations to Climate Change (AIACC).
