This paper focuses on methodological development in research to study climate change impacts and regional sustainability. It starts with an introduction of a conceptual structure for identifying important attributes of regional sustainability and salient properties of climate change to guide research on regional impact assessment and adaptation options. This is followed by a brief review of some methods and approaches which have been used for climate impact assessment and policy evaluation. The paper then presents a research approach for climate change impact assessment and regional sustainability evaluation. In particular, an integrated approach is presented in some detail.
