The sub-regional annual conference held in Marawila, Sri Lanka focused on key issues of linking different stakeholders, focusing on better understanding the concept of loss and damage which is developing to be a key area of focus in the UNFCCC process, and also understanding the outcomes of Doha and better analyzing them.
The workshop can be deemed as successful in creating awareness of the prevalence of a higher level of knowledge in the CSO groups regarding climate change related activism. It also highlighted that there is willingness on the part of ministerial employees to create links in further work that will be conducted
nationally and regionally.
In addition to networking and building of capacity of non-CSO groups, the analysis of Doha outcomes presented the opportunity to create an in-depth dialogue on different areas of work that focuses on the UNFCCC process, and to share each parties knowledge on the working areas which they have been following during COP18.
There were suggestions to create a working mechanism that would facilitate regional collaboration in policy making which would build capacity and help facilitate to raise the voice of the South in the UNFCCC negotiations as well as helping domestic policy initiatives that would help the peoples of the region.

Asia-Pacific region has experienced many extreme weather events in recent years which have led to large numbers of people at high level of exposure to risks including the risk of forced migration. With climate change as an exacerbating factor, migration flows are likely to increase in the Asia Pacific region.

In response, IOM will conduct the first pilot training for policymakers and practitioners on the migration-environment nexus.

The training takes place over three days in the Seoul metropolitan area. Leading experts from around the world will lead each training module.


◆ Build capacity of policymakers and practitioners in order to factor migration into environmental and development policies, climate change adaptation strategies, and to factor environmental change into the comprehensive migration management policies of each country;

◆ Facilitate policy exchange among policymakers and practitioners on migration, environment and climate change
