A team from the Integrated Study Project on Hydro-Meteorological Prediction and Adaptation to Climate Change in Thailand (IMPAC-T), supported by Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has been invited to present research findings at the 2nd Asia-Pacific Water Summit to be held in Chiang Mai, Thailand, from May 14-20, 2013.
IMPAC-T will present a technical workshop, “Hydro-Meteorological Prediction and Adaptation to Climate Change in Thailand and Asia-Pacific region” during the Summit. The workshop aims to share the progress of the research project's activities.
IMPAC-T is currently developing an integrated system adapted for water-related risks of climate change in Thailand. It is expected that the presentation will be attended by decision-makers and leaders from the Asia Pacific region who are involved in control and management strategies for a variety of water-related issues and water-related natural disasters.
