Enduring Vulnerabilities Limit Adaptation: Major climatic and socioeconomic drivers in the HKH Region
11 Oct 2018

Key Message: Vulnerabilities are shaped by the interaction of both climatic stresses and socio-economic drivers and conditions in the local context. They vary across geographical locations, socio-economic conditions, livelihood patterns and governance structures.

  • Poor, socially excluded and marginalized groups are the most vulnerable
  • Relevant policies, strategies and plans should address differential vulnerabilities
  • Greater resources allocations are to be made for the climate affected HKH region and the most vulnerable communities and groups
