The Asia-Pacific region will face particularly grave challenges, including significant displacement of human populations, human health issues and loss of valuable ecosystem services, if climate change continues unabated. This is the final report of the APN project whose main objectives were:
1. To bring together a community of researchers working on earth system governance in general and responses to climate change in particular to jointly learn, stimulate dialogue and initiate new research endeavours.
2. To enable early career researchers from the Asia-Pacific region to participate in an international workshop and to receive feedback and support from established colleagues and their own peers.
3. To contribute to improved awareness and skills in science-policy and science-society dialogue at all (analytical and institutional) governance levels.
