Hydro-meteorological hazards have enormous impacts on socio-economic systems. Droughts, floods and storms, endanger human lives, disrupt livelihood systems, and derail the process of social and economic developments. Livelihood systems that do not have inbuilt buffering mechanisms, such as small land hold rain-fed agriculture systems, are disproportionately vulnerable to the impact of climate events. Long-term anthropogenic climate change may also compound the severity of risks at short-term and inter-annual scales, as it is expected to alter the frequency and complexity of climate hazards.

ADPCís Climate Risk Management Team aims to enhance capacities of communities and countries to manage climate risks at all time scales through the following distinct but inter-connected activities:

  1. Establishment of pilot demonstration project to gain hands-on experience in generating, interpreting, translating and communicating to end-users with constant feedback mechanisms through an end-to-end climate forecast information application systems in high climate risk zones. The demand, acceptability and participation of stakeholder communities are central to all pilot demonstration projects to ensure their sustainability and replicability;

  2. Capacity building efforts through training programs of intermediary institutions that connect climate information providers and local at-risk communities. Creation of a new breed of science integrators who understand how to communicate user needs to climate information providers and facilitate the application of climate information by end-users;

  3. Establishment of interactive climate risk management schools to ensure the incorporation of end-usersí experience and wisdom on climate risk management into decision making process;

  4. Policy advocacy for incorporating climate risk concerns into ongoing development planning processes; and

  5. Providing institutional forum for connecting climate research and prediction centers and high-risk communities and governments. CRM also establishes mechanisms for sharing best practices among the countries in the region.
