Abstract submission deadline: December 1, 2019

The international conference on 'Climate change in the Asia-Pacific region: from environmental aspects to socioeconomic impacts' will take place in Quy Nhon (Vietnam) in March 2020. The conference will focus on interdisciplinary studies, and will regroup specialists from all of the disciplines involved in the study of climate change impacts. The components of the regional socio-environmental system are strongly interconnected, with interactions within the climate system, as well as between environment and society. An interdisciplinary approach is therefore fundamental to tackle the numerous issues raised by climate change.

The Asia-Pacific region is one of the main regional climate systems of the world and is subjected to many climatic hazards. A large part of the Asia-Pacific populations lives in low altitude coastal regions and is thus strongly vulnerable to those hazards. Understanding how the Asia-Pacific regional system will be affected by climate change, from the environmental impacts to the socioeconomic aspects, is thus an important scientific issue.
