Incorporating climate change adaptation into national development policies and plans in selected mountain regions is the focus of a large UN Environment-led project in the Western Balkans, South Caucasus, Central Asia, East Africa, and the Tropical Andes, where we are working with partner organisations and national governments to promote adaptation action. Four policy assessments have been finalized, with the one for Central Asia coming out soon. Following the interest that was created by these Outllooks, a sixth Climate Change Adaptation Outlook is being produced for the Hindu Kush Himalaya.
