IPCC Sixth Assessment Report on Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability underscores how climate change is increasingly and disproportionately affecting the most vulnerable. It emphasizes the urgent need for adaptation and the critical need for solutions that cut across the sectors and systems and address social inequities to enable a more climate-resilient future for everyone. There is a need to analyse and deliberate on the pathways required to achieve Net Zero commitments for the countries in the region and also regional approaches to achieve climate commitments and sustainable, inclusive economic growth. South Asia Region needs to give a joint response to this challenge as many attributes are common to all countries.
