Abstract/Summary:
The Vision Document has been created in response to a priority action point identified at a multi-stakeholder workshop held in Kolkata, in March 2009, on Sundarbans: Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation. The priority action point was identified because of consensus among the participants that highly informed policy decisions are necessary to guide action to cope with pressures of predicted changes in the Sundarbans ecoregion. The mere fact that population is growing means that regardless of climate change, more people will be put in harm’s way. With climate change, new adaptive solutions are needed to prevent exposing the population to these impacts and to reduce their vulnerability.
