Project Summary

Reliable and timely predictions form the cornerstone of warning and preparedness activities for extreme weather and climate. However there are significant gaps in the ability of many APEC economies to produce this information and mainstream these in operational decision making. This project will support regional technical cooperation and capacity building with an emphasis on linking scientists and decision makers by conducting the APEC Climate Symposium 2015 in November 5-6 in Manila, Philippines. It will explore how climate information can be used in practical disaster risk reduction (DRR) activities. It will feature sessions on the topics of science and technology for forecasting extreme climate conditions, sharing of experiences and best practices in the use of climate information for DRR, and information requirements for integrated assessments of climate risks. The project will also feature a tutorial session on GIS-based flood risk mapping using climate indices.
