Overall socio-economic assessments will then be conducted on a region specific basis. The aim of the project is to review and adapt suitable methodologies for assessing vulnerability and adaptive capacity to climate change at the local level in a tropical region. a support group on Socio-Economic Impacts and Response has been established for the first time. The project is currently expanding its partnership to researchers and policy makers in the region. kos pengeluaran per hektar semakin meningkat dan ia berpunca oleh kenaikan dalam kos input seperti baja. The project aims to strengthen research capacity on mainstreaming climate change adaptation in the agriculture and water sectors and also create a network for adaptation policy research in Asia. It is important to understand its potential impacts to the community to assess how resilient they are in managing after effect of any disasters related to climate change. Pengeluaran padi dan beras terutamanya di negara pengeluar utama dunia seperti Thailand. This project was designed to understand the readiness of community towards changes in climate and the environment. Penganalisis ekonomi membahagikan punca kekurangan bekalan dan kenaikan harga beras global kepada beberapa faktor utama. Penyelesaian jangka pendek lebih mensasarkan golongan termiskin dan berpendapatan rendah yang tinggal di bandar dan luar bandar.

Kelembapan pengeluaran padi dan beras menyebabkan berlaku ketidakseimbangan dalam permintaan dan penawaran beras. The initial expected outcomes from this Support Group is to harmonise the methodologies for socio-economic impact assessment in the key sectors. kenaikan mendadak harga beras global telah dikesan semenjak bulan Januari 2008 di mana meningkat sebanyak 20 peratus. Stok beras antarabangsa semakin menyusut. Kekurangan bekalan dan kenaikan harga beras juga disumbangkan oleh pengurangan pelaburan dan perkembangan perlahan daripada aktiviti-aktiviti penyelidikan dan pembangunan (R&D) dan pembaikan infrastruktur sistem pengairan terutama di negara-negara pengeluar padi dan beras utama. Pelaburan R&D untuk menghasilkan benih padi dan penemuan teknik penanaman moden adalah perlahan kerana faktor kekurangan dana penyelidikan dan komitmen di kalangan badan penyelidikan antarabangsa dan negara-negara maju.
