The chapter ‘Differential Vulnerability to Climate Change in Asia and Challenges for Adaptation within the Kyoto Context’ by Lilibeth Acosta-Michlik, Liu Chunling and Ulka Kelkar aims to provide answers to this question by discussing the sources of vulnerability in Asia and presenting selected case studies in most vulnerable Asian countries.
