Capacity Development for Adaptation to Climate Change –Climate Modeling and Analysis

Many international research institutions for scientific observation and analysis of global warming have been implementing climate change projection by modeling the climate.

This training program is organized as three-year (2008-2010) program to realize the final result for adaptation to climate change - climate change analysis and modeling. The program was conducted at the Meteorological Research Institute in the first two years (2008, 2009) and this year (2010) at ICHARM.

The purpose of the program in this year is to strengthen the abilities of government officials in developing countries to evaluate the impacts of climate change on rivers and to design adaptation strategies to them.
