KlimaCampus Kolloquium: Using Regional Climate Projections for Asia and the Pacific

Access to scientifically credible climate change information and guidelines have been identified as strong impediments for the robust assessment of risks related to climate change and for effective adaptation planning. To support better knowledge of and adaptation to climate change risks, the Asian Development Bank funded a project for Indonesia, Philippines, and Thailand to:

(i) Establish a regional climate consortium,

(ii) Develop a portal for access to climate information products and services, including guidelines on their use,

(iii) Develop the technical capacity building for the development, interpretation and application of climate information including developing case studies on the use of regional climate projections for impact and adaptation assessment,

(iv) Develop a plan for sustainability of the consortium.

This presentation will present the goals of the project and the draft guidelines for the use of regional climate projections for impact and vulnerability assessments.
