APCC Held the ‘APCC Climate Information Services Technical Workshop’
Climate Center (APCC) held the “APCC Climate Information
Services Technical Workshop” at APCC on 6 – 7 October
2020 in Busan, Korea.
aimed to promote the use of APCC’s climate prediction and
information services in Korea and to effectively increase the utilization
capacity of climate information. 18 university (graduate) students and
researchers in the field of climate information production and utilization of
related domestic institutions and universities participated in the workshop.
workshop, APCC researchers introduced the theories behind APCC’s climate
prediction and conducted practical training sessions on how to use APCC climate
information services. During the training workshop, participants were able to
directly communicate with the APCC researchers to answer their questions on
APCC climate information services.
On the first
day of the workshop, there was a presentation entitled ‘Introduction to APCC’s Climate
Prediction and Information Services’. After that, the participants
had a chance to learn how to use the ‘Climate Information Service
Platform’ (http://cliks.apcc21.org), which allows climate information users to
select and utilize a wider variety of climate data. Participants also learned
about the ‘Climate Information Processing system’ (CLIPs,
http://clips.apcc21.org), which enables users to extract and reprocess
necessary data for each region, variable, and period set by the user.
On the second
day, there was a session on the ‘Open Web Processing Service’ (OpenWPS,
http://openwps.apcc21.org), a climate data interface
service offering both a visualization service based on climate data and area
boundary information for detailed data extraction based on geographic
introduction to climate prediction information offered on the APCC homepage (www.apcc21.org), participants had a chance to learn how to use the ‘CLimate
Information toolKit’ (CLIK, http://clik.apcc21.org), which enables its users to produce
customized climate prediction information.
technical workshop combines sessions from previously held APCC training workshops.
APCC plans to hold the APCC Climate Information Services Technical Workshop
annually for users of APCC's climate information service in Korea and abroad.

The APEC Climate Center Held the APCC Working Group Meeting 2020
The APEC Climate Center (APCC) held the first virtual APCC Working Group Meeting 2020 with 10 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Member Economies.At this meeting, representatives from the National Hydro-Meteorological Services (NHMSs) from 10 APEC member economies shared their current status of climate prediction and services and the status of extreme events in recent years, including communication strategies. Based on this, the meeting participants of APEC member economies and APCCd had the chance to present opinions on use and improvement of climate prediction and its information provision service and to discuss the right direction of climate service.By so doing, the meeting participants tried to find ways to effectively monitor and respond to extreme events across the Asia-Pacific region and to produce and use the necessary climate prediction information in order to cope with them.The meeting was attended by climate forecasting and service working groups from the National Hydro-Meteorological Services (NHMSs) from 10 APEC member economies including Malaysia, Australia, Indonesia, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Canada, and the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA). The meeting was chaired by Mr. LimZe Hui, Director of the Technical Training Division at the Malaysian Meteorological Department. 7 participants, including Dr. Won-Tae Kwon, the Executive Director, attended this meeting from APCC.The APEC Climate Center collected opinions from the working group members on the use of APCC's climate prediction and provision services to improve it in the future. Strengthening cooperation with APEC member economies to enhance climate prediction capabilities, will also elevate climate information users’ satisfaction related to APCC’s extreme climate event monitoring information across the Asia-Pacific region.The APCC Working Group is made up of representatives from the National Hydro-Meteorological Services (NHMSs) from all APEC Member Economies and relevant participating institutions. The Working Group members facilitate the exchange of regional climate information, particularly climate prediction information among the APEC member economies. The group works closely with the APCC Climate Research Department in the improvement of the multi-model ensemble (MME) forecasting system and for the development of new forecast application areas.

APCC to Participate in APEC PPSTI Meeting through the Video Conferencing System between 27 and 28 August, 2020
Ms. Sangwon Moon, head of External Affairs Department and Ms. Inja Jeon, Researcher of the same department from the APEC Climate Center (APCC), attended the 16th APEC Policy Partnership on Science, Technology, and Innovation (PPSTI) meeting between 27 and 28 August, 2020 through video conferencing system.PPSTI is an APEC working group consisting of government personnel from APEC member economies and experts in science and technology from academia and the private sector. It is the primary forum that supports the development of science, technology, and innovation in APEC.Through video conferencing system, APCC discussed the postponement of the APEC Climate Symposium, rescheduled to be held in July 2021 in Malaysia in response to the spread of COVID19, with the APEC member economies during the meeting.

APCC Held the 2020 Climate Prediction Workshop (CPW 2020)
The APEC Climate Center (APCC) held the 2020 Climate Prediction Workshop (CPW 2020) on the topic: “The Now & Future of Climate Prediction Technology Development” at the Busan Exhibition & Convention Center (BEXCO) in Haeundae, Busan on July 9th, 2020.APCC's CPW 2020 was held to provide a platform to enable domestic climate prediction experts to share their latest research achievements and experiences regarding key issues in the field of climate prediction. During the workshop, participants had the chance to participate in in-depth discussions on the direction of climate prediction technology development. This workshop aims to contribute to producing and providing climate prediction information with low uncertainty and high reliability. Representatives from various government and climate prediction related institutes such as the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA), National Institute of Meteorological Sciences (NIMS), Universities, and more, attended the CPW 2020.APCC hopes that this workshop will promote the production of optimal climate forecast information. Effective monitoring of abnormal climate events, such as heat waves and typhoons, can help reduce damages to the national economy, lives, and property.APCC's CPW 2020 was conducted in compliance with strict quarantine measures to prevent COVID-19 infection.
