Approximately 100 years of observation al records have revealed changes in extreme events. Recently, some extreme climate events have become more frequent resulting in increased damage to human society and ecosystems . The goals of this project are to develop and compute indicators of trends in climate extremes for the Asia-Pacific region; build regional capacity in systematic handling and analysing of climate data; apply indicators of trends in climate extremes to future climate change projects; and promote the application of climate trend indicators for government policy development. It is envisaged having an enhanced understanding of the Asia Pacific region climate, as countries work together using common techniques to analyse and compare national climate data.
