Coinciding with United Nations Climate Change Conference COP28 in Dubai, the Lakshmi Mittal and Family South Asia Institute recently released a new policy brief, “Climate Change in South Asia: Requisites for a Sustainable Future.”

The brief argues that scientifically sound, community-centered, multisectoral approaches that account for long timescales are essential for preparing and protecting the vast majority of South Asia’s population vulnerable to climate change.

The brief draws attention to critical knowledge gaps, information disparities, and decision-making barriers faced by the region’s most vulnerable communities, and underscores the need for substantial investments in community-centered innovation, financing, and adaptation to effectively address the climate crisis.
