A regional study, Economics of Climate Change in East Asia examines strategies that the PRC, Japan, the Republic of Korea, and Mongolia can adopt that combine adapting to climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the years ahead of 2050. It also considers the medium-term climate change adaptation costs involved for sectors such as agriculture, coastal protection, and infrastructure, while also taking into account the long-term potential effectiveness of climate change adaptation and mitigation policies.
