An Online Workspace for People Working on Climate Adaptation Projects in Asia

What is Climate Lab Asia?

Climate Lab Asia (CLA) is an online workspace for people and organisations working on climate adaptation programs and projects in Asia. Each program/project is offered its own collaboration space with member groups, wiki’s and online learning tools.

Why Climate Lab Asia?

Across the Asia region, there are many climate adaptation programs and projects, focusing on a broad range of topics. All these programs/projects bring local and international experts together who work together for a shorter or longer period of time, share knowledge, develop ideas, acquire new insights, implement solutions, etc. Many times, this knowledge is not captured and shared between projects and programs.
