Climate Capacity Building: Risk Anticipation and Minimization

As of: March 2019

Objective and activities

The project aims to build local capacities for improving resilience against variability and trends of regional climate by providing seasonal forecasts of climate phenomena and by assessing their impacts on water and agriculture as well as implications for patterns of climate migration. Creating and using knowledge about climate risks and their prediction will be anchored in the target countries. To do so, in combination with observational data and seasonal forecasts, the project will provide projections of reoccurring phenomena like monsoon and El Niño as well as climate induced trends. These results will be used by the hydrology and agricultural sector in order to identify direct impacts on the lives of the country’s population. This in turn is necessary for understanding and anticipating climate-induced migration patterns.
