The APEC Climate Center (APCC) is domestically and internationally leading the climate prediction technology development to increase the accuracy and reliability of climate prediction information by using state-of-the-art technologies, while at the same time conducting research and development (R&D) on the analysis and prediction technology for global climate change. APCC was established by the endorsement of 21 APEC members in 2005 as a worldwide climate prediction institute serving as a hub for climate information in the Asia-Pacific region.
APCC produces and provides accurate and reliable climate prediction information based on analysis using a Multi-Model Ensemble (MME) scheme. For the MME system, APCC collects climate prediction data from the 15 leading climate prediction centers and institutes in 11 economies.
