Abstract: This essay explores the issue of climate change in the Asia-Pacific region, particularly focusing on the forestry sector. Following an overview of forest resources in the region, it describes current and projected trends in climate. Potential impacts of climate change on forests are then discussed. A few scientific models that have been utilized to predict climate change patterns are also introduced. The essay then reviews few suggested improvements on adaptation strategies. It concludes with some national policies aimed at combating climate changes, and typical challenges that are faced by many tropical countries in the region.
