Asia/Pacific Network Climate Report

Recently, the Asia/Pacific Network (APN) published a Climate Synthesis Report, which is a synthesis of 56-related projects funded by the APN since 1999. The report indicates that,

"while there is much activity at the global level, there is a great need to intensify investigative research of climate change and climate variability and trends at the regional level, as these are still poorly understood. Consistent socio-economic data collection is needed, as is the need for an interdisciplinary approach to solving complex climate change problems. The increasing frequency and severity of floods, droughts and extreme temperatures requires the use of appropriate indices to improve monitoring and prediction of extreme events."




The report can be found on the APN Website at http://www.apn-gcr.org/2011/10/04/apn-publishes-climate-synthesis/
