Training programme on climate change downscaling approaches and applications

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): Geoinformatics Center of the Asian Institute of Technology, the
University Network for Climate and Ecosystems Change Adaptation Research

Type: Training Course Date: 10 - 22 Nov 2012 Location: Thailand (Bangkok) Venue: Chulalongkorn University

Background

After a very successful climate projection downscaling pilot training programme launched last year, we are happy to announce the November 2012 Training Programme on Climate Change Downscaling Approaches and Applications that will be held in Bangkok, Thailand with the support of Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) and Chulalongkorn University as local organizers. These training sessions were developed under the framework of University Network for Climate and Ecosystems Change Adaptation Research (UN-CECAR). The objectives of the programme are to assess the impact of climate change in a region and to reduce their vulnerabilities through the latest technologies and methodologies necessary to downscale and the appropriate use of downscaled information. The training module consists of the following course categories: science of climate change and downscaling, dynamical and statistical downscaling methods, impacts on rice production and impacts on floods. Participants will also receive practical training in the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in downscaling and modelling extreme climatic events.
