International Projects

The APEC Climate Center provides climate prediction data and transfer related technologies to countries or economies in the Asia-Pacific region to respond to and adapt to climate change. In addition, we are carrying out various cooperative projects so that countries that require climate information can flexibly respond to problems on their own and achieve sustainable development. We are also working with various international organizations to exchange expertise for the development of climate science and collaborate through projects to analyze extreme climate phenomena and to their impacts.
