The USAID Climate Change Adaptation Project Preparation Facility for Asia and the Pacific (ADAPT Asia-Pacific), at the request of the Royal Thai Government, provided assistance in the preparation of a National Climate Change Research Strategy. The Research Strategy was needed because current climate change research is largely uncoordinated – making it exceedingly difficult to focus research efforts on issues of highest national priority – and research results often do not reach the hands of policymakers, planners, and practitioners who need to have evidence-based information in order to effectively achieve their mandates in the climate change field.
