The APEC Climate Symposium (APCS) is an annual event, held since 2005, that brings together around 100 scientists, representatives of National Hydrological and Meteorological Services, academics, policy-makers and students from around the world to discuss emerging issues in climate prediction and its applications.

Role & Function

APCC has organized the annual APEC Climate Symposium (APCS) to facilitate knowledge exchange on the latest climate prediction techniques in the region and beyond. The APCS also builds capacity for climate adaptation and provides a venue for the interaction of the world’s leading scientists, researchers, meteorological services, decision makers, and other stakeholders. Themes related to climate prediction and its applications are developed each year which guide the organized sessions and presentations.
