The Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Information Platform (AP-PLAT) was established at the 2018 Group of Twenty (G20) Summit in Japan with the vision of helping Asia-Pacific countries to build a climate-resilient and sustainable society. Its activities revolve around: 1) developing scientific knowledge and information related to climate change impacts in the region; 2) providing support tools for stakeholders engaged in policy-making; and 3) providing capacity-building on climate change impact assessment and formulation of adaptation projects.
In relation to this, the collab presented useful scientific tools and online capacity-building services available in AP-PLAT and discussed potential areas for collaboration/synergy between AP-PLAT and PEMSEA and the role of IGES as a PEMSEA Regional Center of Excellence (RCOE) and promoter of capacity-building activities concerning AP-PLAT.
