Facilitating knowledge sharing and co-creation between communities of climate research and its users

Climate impacts and risks involve climatic impact drivers, the exposure and vulnerability of natural and socioeconomic systems, and a strong interdependency exists between climate, nature and human society. Effective climate change adaptation requires effective knowledge sharing and co-creation between communities of climate research and its users. This pilot project of the World Climate Research Programme,...

Supporting regional and international cooperation in research on extremes in climate prediction and projection ensembles: Workshop summary

Weather and climate extremes have enormous impacts on society, and are becoming more severe and frequent as the world warms. Most developing countries in the Asia-Pacific region are highly vulnerable to risks associated with heatwaves and cold spells, droughts and floods, tropical cyclones, wildfires, and other extremes. To support regional and international cooperation for research...

A multicriteria approach to assessing the sustainability of community-based ecotourism in Central Vietnam

Nature exploration, or ecotourism, has been an essential part of tourism, and today takes on a much broader meaning beyond tourism that includes conserving nature and culture and improving people’s lives, especially in the indigenous community. Community-based ecotourism (CBET) has specific benefits closely related to the sustainability of natural ecosystems and community development. CBET can...

Climate change scenarios over Southeast Asia

Southeast Asia is one of the world’s regions most vulnerable to climate change impacts with low-lying land, more severe floods and droughts, larger populations, higher dependency on agriculture for the economic sector, and low resilience of communities. Therefore, a study on how future climate change will affect this region has been conducted, and the results...

Measuring forest ecosystem services in Aceh Province for inclusion to local forest resource management plans

The project trained forest managers from Kesatuan Pengelo- laan Hutan (KPH) and Social Forestry units in Aceh Province in forest resource data collection and the use of three tools that report important forest ecosystem services. Data were collected in systematic forest plots by local KPH staff and social forestry community members for measuring forest carbon,...

Smart city indicators: Towards exploring potential linkages to disaster resilience abilities

Recent advances in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have transformed all aspects of human life. Enabled by these advances, over the past few decades, many smart city initiatives have been developed across the world. Subsequently, various efforts have been made to develop indicators and frameworks for the assessment of smart cities. Generally, smart cities are...

Spatial variability of nutrient sources determining phytoplankton Chlorophyll-a concentrations in the Bay of Bengal

Primary production is a key marine ecosystem driver in the Bay of Bengal and is important for the societies and economies of the surrounding countries. Although the availability of inorganic nutrients is known to control primary production in this region, the specific nutrient sources that affect primary production in different parts of the bay have...

Impact of biomass burning sources during the high season on PM2.5 pollution observed at sampling sites in Hanoi, Vietnam and Chiang Rai, Thailand

This study aimed to assess PM2.5 concentration and the potential impacts of biomass burning sources on PM2.5 measured at the sampling sites in Hanoi, Vietnam and Chiang Rai, Thailand during the high season (from January to April) in 2021 in which intensive biomass burning activities occur in Southeast Asia (SEA) region. For this purpose, an...

Energy and water footprints comparison of East Asia: A heterogeneity analysis

Population and economic growth have posed serious challenges to meet global energy and water needs. With the formation of global value chains and regional economic models changing the location and scale of environmental pressures, East Asia deserves special attention because of its importance in world trade. This paper constructed a global multi-regional input-output table based...

Spatial planning-based ecosystem adaptation (SPBEA) as a method to mitigate the impact of climate change: The effectiveness of hybrid training and participatory workshops during a pandemic in Indonesia

Climate change has a greater effect on the long-term viability of coastal environments and people’s livelihoods. The idea of using ecosystems to help people deal with the effects of climate change is becoming more common at the international, national and local levels, especially when it comes to spatial planning. So, learning about spatial planning-based ecosystem...
