(A) THA 2022 Training courses for hydrologic analysis using GCM climate projection outputs
On January 28, 2022 AM
Purpose of the training
In this training workshop, you will learn about climate change downscaled data for Southeast Asia and water resource impact assessment using it. In addition, you will learn how to use climate change data through exercises. At first, dynamically downscaled high-resolution climate projection outputs in Southeast Asia using a regional climate model (RCM) are introduced. Next, a large ensemble of climate simulations (d4PDF) developed by using a 60 km atmospheric general circulation model (AGCM) and dynamical downscaling with a 20 km RCM is explained. Then, a 150-year continuous simulation using a GCM is introduced. After the introduction of climate change scenario data, an impact assessment of climate change on water resources in Southeast Asia is introduced. After these lectures, a training excessive will be provided to study how to access the climate projection data and how handle the data through a simple application of the usage of d4PDF at the selected river basin in Southeast Asia.
(B) THA 2022 Training courses for water security index
28th January 2022 in the afternoon
Purpose of the training
During RIO+20 meeting, the sustainable green economy for protecting environmental health via income increasing and poor eradication were discussed. The successful countries for sustainable green economy depend on efficiency of integrated water management and provision of water supply and sanitary services. Water security index was another issue that had been proposed to monitor the national socio-economical development which comprised of household, urban water, economic water (including irrigation water), river health and resilience.
(C) Dialogue on Science-Policy Interface on Water and Climate Change
Friday 28th January 2022, at 13.00-16.00 GMT+7
With the situation of urgency on climate change and environmental challenges we have been facing, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Inter-Panel on Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) have identified the need of transformational change, in which technology is identified as one of the drivers for transformative change , will accelerate actions towards the goals of limiting temperature rise to 1.5 degrees C by 2030 and living in harmony with nature by 2050.
According to the 2019 Human Development Report (HDR), there were key lessons-learnt related to the Science and Policy Interface. The report reflected the need of increasing research and measurements. Progress of science, technology and innovation cannot be predetermined, but steered by economic and social drives from the society. Policymakers can shape the direction of technological change in ways that enhance human development i.e. provision of the scientific advice to inform local decision-making on climate change , the application of the digital citizen-science tools for budgeting and policy planning.
Therefore, to strengthen the linkages between science and policy, as well as enabling ecosystem for driving climate action, ‘Dialogue on Science-Policy Interface on Water and Climate Change’ aims to create a space for discussion and drive action on Science-Policy Interface among young professionals from various background and take forward with youth networks and relevant stakeholders for implementing change across different sectors.
1. Familiarize participants with the concept of Science-Policy Interface
2. Explore challenges and opportunities for Science-Policy Interface
3. Network and build community of action for continuing activities towards achieving SDGs
40 young professionals, focus but not limited to 18-35 years old
(Background Covering: Researcher, NGO, Science-Policy Interface, Policy, Youth Network, Indigenous Organization, Finance, Media, Others that is relevant to climate change and water issues)
(D) Online Workshop of Status of Water Conservation, Climate Change and Ecosystem-based Adaptation In ASEAN
Friday 28 January 2022 , at 10.00-12.00
In this online workshop, you will learn about status of water conservation, climate change and ecosystem-based adaptation in ASEAN. The example of status index of Thailand and other countries is illustrated. The gap of this issue is discussed.
