Summary: This volume is a synthesis of a multicounty collaborative effort between the World Bank and the governments of Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia. This effort built on the success of a similar effort in four Eastern Europe and Central Asia (ECA) countries, detailed in the World Bank book, looking beyond the Horizon (Sutton, Srivastava, and Neumann, eds. 2013a). The goal of this new book in this second set of countries is to bring together the lessons learned and recommendations from the country-specific work, identify new insights for adaptation planning at the regional level for the South Caucasus, and provide further guidance on the approach and methodology for others who wish to pursue similar analyses elsewhere. The present study is the culmination of the efforts by national and regional institutions and researchers, the World Bank team, and a team of international experts headed by the consulting firm Industrial Economics, Incorporated, to analyze the potential impacts climate change may have on the agriculture sector in the client countries, but, more importantly, to develop a list of prioritized measures those countries can use to adapt to those impacts.
