The Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) is a fast growing economic region exposed to a number of challenges resulting from climate change such as extreme flood events and rising sea levels. The ASEAN region members comprise of Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

 

As a result of an increasing number of climate change adaptation and mitigation projects and activities in the region, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) recently contracted IIEC to design and develop the ASEAN Climate Change Action Database (ACCAD). The objective is to consolidate information on-going climate change action projects in the ASEAN region, and to lay a strong foundation for sustainable information sharing mechanisms for climate change issues. For example, IIEC has identified at least 35 international and national websites (including project databases) covering climate change actions in the ASEAN region. This shows that there is a clear opportunity for information consolidation and highlights the importance of ACCAD.
