Abstract

    In recent years, issue of climate change was highly focused. But facing of the threat of climate change, the government agencies and the adaptation planning teams often do not know how to make the adaptation plan correctly. Under the uncertainty of climate change and society development, it is also lack of systematic method and tool to help making proper adaptation plan. Therefore, this study brought the methodology of adaptation pathways under climate change uncertainty and developed the six steps of making climate change adaptation strategies, from problem definition and goal setting, current risk assessment and analysis, future risk assessment and analysis, identifying and evaluating adaptation options, planning and implementing adaptation pathway, and monitoring and adjusting adaptation pathway. Furthermore, the decision support tool, AdaptCAB, which is following the six steps of making climate change adaptation strategies, was brought out to help checking adaptation plans. It also provides the details of each step, the use of tools and outputs of the adaptation six steps as a reference of making climate change adaptation plan.
