It is a comprehensive literature synthesis on climate change and human adaptation from both published and electronic references.

It seeks to validate the scientific basis of current development efforts focused on the dynamics of human behavior and choices as affected by or in response to climate change. More importantly, it aims to identify researchable areias related to the socio-economics of climate change in the Philippines, particularly in the  agriculture, forestry, and natural resources (AFRN) sectors. It is intended as a guide to policy makers and program implementers for crafting an appropriate and cost effective climate change agenda to protect the country from the impending hazards and effects of this phenomenon.

Though focused on the Philippines, the analysis, conclusions and identified research gaps are consistent with and are reflective of the situation in the Southeast Asian Region as a whole.
