ASEAN Climate Outlook Forum
ASEAN Climate Outlook Forum (ASEANCOF) was initiated by the World Meteorological Organization/Climate Information and Prediction Services (WMO/CLIPS) project, in collaboration with National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs), regional/international climate centres among many other partners. The Forum aims to provide collaboratively developed and consensus-based seasonal climate outlooks and related information on a regional scale. These activities support decision-making to manage climate-related risks and support sustainable development.
Southeast Asia Climate Analysis and Modelling
The Southeast Asia Climate Analysis and Modelling (SEACAM) framework was initiated by the Centre for Climate Research Singapore (CCRS) in 2011 in collaboration with the UK Met Office Hadley Centre (MOHC). SEACAM’s objectives are to enhance regional scientific cooperation and increase scientific capacity among climate researchers in the Southeast Asia region through workshops and collaborative projects in the areas of regional climate analysis and modelling.
S2S-SEA Capability Building Programme
A series of workshops for the Subseasonal-to-Seasonal Prediction for Southeast Asia (S2S-SEA) Capability Building Programme was proposed by the ASEAN Specialised Meteorological Centre (ASMC) to enhance regional capacity and collaboration in S2S among the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs). S2S prediction, which provides forecasts on the timescale of 2 weeks to 2 months, has potential applications in water resources, disaster risk reduction, health and agriculture as these often involve decisions that require lead-times in the S2S time range.
Years of the Maritime Continent
The Years of the Maritime Continent (YMC) is a proposed international framework for atmospheric and oceanographic field observations within the Southeast Asia “Maritime continent” region, proposed to take place from mid-2017 to mid-2019. The initial proposal for the YMC was developed within university communities in USA, Japan and Europe in association with the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and the Indonesian Meteorological Service BKMG.
Climate Science Experts Network
The Climate Science Experts Network (CSEN) was launched in January 2012 by the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) and the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR). CSEN is a technical and sharing platform for Singapore-based experts in the physical science of climate change, bringing together academics from different disciplines to forge a collaborative framework.
