Success in tackling a highly complex climate change problem will require strong will, great policy skills, looking-forward vision and a global commitment to fairness and justice based upon the principle of common but differentiated responsibility and respective capabilities among nations.
Asian countries are the heart of this challenge. Population size of more than 4 billion people (60% of the world population) and the potentials of rapid economic growth and large trade surplus with the rest of the world. The annual mean warming would be about 3oC in the 2050s and about 5oC in the 2080s (IPCC Third Assessment Report). Exacerbate the threat to biodiversity due to land use and land cover changes and population pressure.
A need to encourage collaborative efforts, particularly for the developing countries of Asia, where impacts of climate change are likely to be felt most severely because of resource and infrastructure constraints.
