Know Waste Knowledge (KWK) Platform
The Know Waste Knowledge (KWK) Platform provides a platform for information and knowledge sharing to support inform decision-making on marine debris in ASEAN. The platform was created with the objective of generating and consolidating data and information on sustainable waste management, as well as transforming data into comprehensible outputs for key stakeholders to use. The KWK platform also provides information on international waste management projects, as well as offers capacity- building support for stakeholders through e-Learning content.
FloodS, a Flood Forecasting Tool for Climate Adaptation
FloodS is a flood forecasting tool. A tool developed by a Japanese private company ‘Hitachi’ under the support of the Ministry of Environment, Japan. The introduction of this tool is owing to the requirement of climate adaptation in the region to forecast the flood and their expected impact for appropriate adaptation strategies as a part of a larger climate adaptation plan in the region. The knowledge from the deployment of the tool will help countries in the implementation of an integrated climate-resilient flood risk management approach and improve their existing capacity in understanding the potential impacts of climate change on flooding and flood risk management and enhance the resilience of vulnerable communities.
The S8 SI-CAT DOWNSCALER
The design of adaptation solutions requires climate change scenarios to assess vulnerabilities. However, it requires a considerable resources to downscale climate data which add financial and technical burdens for locally-led adaptation. To bridge this gap, we introduce the S8DS dynamical climate change data downscaling service. This allows practitioners to assess global climate scenarios at the local scale without highly specialized technical training and skills.
