The APEC Climate Center (APCC) signs an MOU with Greenlabs on Climate Change in Agriculture
APCC has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Korea's biggest AgTech startup Greenlabs at the Greenlabs' headquarter in Seoul on May 3, 2022.This agreement seeks opportunities to accelerate the utilization of climate information in agriculture, a sector sensitive to climate change. The cooperation between the two companies aims to combat extreme climate and support developing countries, ultimately advancing citizens' quality of life and ensuring balanced national development.Through this MoU, APCC and Greenlabs will cooperate in securing agricultural productivity and conducting decarbonization projects by utilizing the climate prediction model. In addition, the two organizations will exchange information and conduct domestic and foreign joint projects regarding climate change and extreme weather. They will also co-host academic seminars, workshops, and exchange research, publications, and other materials.​Articles published in foreign media1.

APCC Commenced Its Boreal Summer Intraseasonal Oscillation Forecast for the Year 2022 from 1 May, 2022
The APEC Climate Center (APCC) commenced its Boreal Summer Intraseasonal Oscillation (BSISO) forecast for the year 2022 at its website from 1 May, 2022.BSISO forecast plays an important role in predicting the beginning and the characteristics of the Asian summer monsoon. The Oscillation is a large-scale convection, with a period of 15 to 60 days. It originates over the Indian Ocean, gradually traveling eastward as well as north with a diverse structure. It affects the beginning of the Asian summer monsoon, circulation of atmosphere, and weather patterns.Also, BSISO forecast provides information that helps predict dry and wet seasons in Asia by tracing large scale zones of precipitation. It plays an important role in predicting hydrometeorological extreme weather phenomena. Users can therefore prepare for disasters like heavy rainfall, drought, and heat wave.BSISO impact anomaly as a content of BSISO forecast shows local impact of BSISO activity over the Asian monsoon region for various variables such as temperature, precipitation, wind and so on. Also, users are able to download forecast indices from participating models and find model information. It is expected that these contents help users get more intuitive and useful information. At the same time, the climatological reference period was changed to the last 30 years from 1981 to 2010 to 1991 to 2020.APCC first provided BSISO forecast services at its website, in cooperation with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the Working Group on Numerical Experimentation (WGNE) and the Madden Julian Oscillation (MJO) Task Force on July 1, 2013.BSISO Forecast Website :https://apcc21.org/ser/meth.do?lang=en
