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.

ASEAN Regional Climate Data, Analysis and Projections
The ASEAN Regional Climate Data, Analysis and Projections (ARCDAP) workshop series was initiated in 2018 by the Centre for Climate Research Singapore (CCRS), in collaboration with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), under the Climate Risk and Early Warning Systems initiative (Canada-CREWS) by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). The workshop series aims to improve regional knowledge on climate variability and change, climate processes, climate extremes, and the validation of climate simulations, in addition to encouraging regional collaboration and information sharing.

WPNM Capability Building Programme
A series of training modules on Weather Prediction by Numerical Methods (WPNM) was initiated in 2019 by the ASEAN Specialised Meteorological Centre (ASMC) to build regional capability in numerical weather prediction and to provide opportunities for regional collaboration and information sharing. These training modules aim to deepen the understanding of the conceptualisation, formulation and limitations of numerical weather prediction models, which are often used as guidance for providing nowcasting, medium-range and seasonal forecasts.
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.
In addition to workshops and lectures, here are other events which were organised by or involved CCRS.
