Introduction to AP-PLAT (Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Information Platform)
The following are self-paced e-learning videos about emerging adaptation issues such as Nature-based Solutions, Compound & Cascading Disaster Risks, and instructions on climate projection tools.
Nature-Based Solutions for local communities
In these videos, you will learn about the four-step process for utilizing NbS during your project development.
Lesson 1 Understanding NbS
Lesson 2 Incorporating NbS into local policy and financing processes
Lesson 3 Practical Examples of NbS at the local scale
This e-learning course on Nature-based Solutions (NbS) is designed to integrate NbS into local policies and financing schemes.
Accessing the GCF for adaptation
This lesson reflects on some of the insights to help proponents understand and navigate the process of collaborating with an AE.
Use of the S8 downscaler (S8DS), a climate downscaling tool to aid climate adaptation planning
This course introduces critical climate change data and how it is used in many sectors to make decisions.
Utilize a climate projection tool "CLIMOCAST" for the NAP process
This e-learning course aims to teach how the climate projection tool “ClimoCast” can be used in the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process.
Utilize a climate projection tool "CLIMOCAST" for the NAP process (Japanese)
This video presents how to use "ClimoCast" in Japanese
Building resilience to compound and cascading disaster risks
This e-learning course targets local/national government officers and will help them develop the capacity to implement specific measures to build resilience against such disasters.
Climate adaptation and resilience building through sustainable waste and resource manegemant
This short course introduces key considerations and approaches for climate change adaptation and urban resilience planning from the perspectives of sustainable waste and resource management.
Increasing coherence in climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction
This short course outlines some of the key concepts, opportunities, and challenges for enhancing and integrating climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction.
The following videos are from the international event held by AP-PLAT.
COP27 Japan Pavilion AP-PLAT Seminar
Session Title: Formulation and Implementation of National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) in the Asia Pacific - Establishing a System to Promote Adaptation Towards the Achievement of the Global Goal on Adaptation (GGA)
These videos display a visualization of the temperature changes on a world map using the Climate Projection Data Set (CMIP6) used in the latest IPCC report (AR6).
Interviews (Japan's Case Studies)
The following are videos provided by AP-PLAT on climate change adaptation in Japan. It is available with English subtitles.
Toyama Prefecture “Fufufu” the rice variety resistant to high temperatures
This is an interview with Mr. Yuichiro Kojima, from the Breeding Section of the Agricultural Research Institute, regarding wet-land rice which has already experienced climate change impacts in the field of agriculture.
Prof. Mimura of Ibaraki University explains the background and prospects for future adaptation promotion plans in Japan, while Prof. Yokoki and Assoc. Prof. Tamura of Ibaraki University talk about adaptation promotion in agriculture and disaster prevention.
