The Sourcebook was prepared on behalf of the USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific project by Dr. Nancy K. Diamonds and Dominique Lallement. Oversight was provided by Robert Dobias, Project Team Leader for Capacity Building. The authors would like to extend a special thanks to Brian Harding of the USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific project and Ashley Mills of dTS who provided valuable backup support, and to Gary Harrison who edited the draft document. The sourcebook benefited from earlier work contributed by Kara Nichols Barrett and Sharon Williams from dTS. Appreciation is due to the following individuals who supported this work in various ways: Lee Baker, Chief of Party for USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific; Brad Philips, USAID Contracting Officer’s Representative (COR); and Piyachatr Pradubraj, Regional Technical Coordinator for USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific; and the many people from the Asia-Pacific region and elsewhere who responded to an initial telephone survey.
Special appreciation is extended to those from the gender and climate communities who generously offered their time and expertise as members of a Technical Advisory Group which reviewed the draft sourcebook. Their insights were invaluable to improving the quality of the sourcebook. They included: Andrea Kutter, Senior Program Coordinator, World Bank; Dennis Bours, SEA Change Chief of Party, PACT; Elizabeth Eggerts, Climate Finance and Gender Specialist, UNDP; Ellen Connorton, Science Officer & AAAS Fellow, U.S. Department of State; Liane Schalatek, Associate Director, Heinrich Boell Foundation; Linda Adams, Social Development Specialist, Asian Development Bank; Dr. Magnus Torell, Senior Advisor, SEAFDEC Secretariat; Sonomi Tanaka, Lead Social Development Specialist (Gender & Development), Asian Development Bank; and Suzette Mitchell, Gender and Climate Change Programme Advisor, UN Women.
