Capacity Building to Study and Address Climate Change Induced Extremes in Northern Asia
|Project Summary||The performed activity is aimed at involvement of regional research community, especially young scientists, into professional activity in the area of studies of climate change induced extremes with special emphasis on their manifestations in Northern Asia. To reach this objective, firstly the dedicated international APN Workshop “Climate change induced extremes in Northern Asia” with enlarged participation of young scientists from the targeted region was organized (Irkutsk, 2012). Major Workshop scientific and tutorial materials and key messages on potential role of climate change induced extremes in Northern Asia sustainable development are opened to young researchers and the regional decision makers via a specially developed and launched dedicated web site. Additional thematic material accessible at the site summarizes findings of the NEESPI/SIRS Workshop "Different aspects of the Northern Eurasia regional climate dynamics and its interrelations with global processes" (Petrozavodsk, 2013). Both Workshops were embedded into the regular international events ENVIROMIS and CITES, which enlarge the number of young scientists and regional decision makers directly involved. Also, thematic educational tools aimed at young scientists’ education/training in the area of climate change including extremes analysis were developed and made accessible through the web site thus helping young scientists in development of professional skill.|
