Technical training on developing adaptation platforms in Thailand and Indonesia was held in Tokyo on December 6, 2018, with 16 participants including the following organizations: the Thai Environment Research and Training Center (ERTC), the Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning (ONEP), and the National Development Planning Agency (BAPPENAS); the Indonesian National Action Plan on Climate Change Adaptation (RAN-API) and the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES); and the Ministry of the Environment of Japan (MOEJ).
NIES is working to support the development of an adaptation information platform for disseminating the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) and adaptation measures in Thailand and Indonesia based on their experience of developing the Climate Change Adaptation Information Platform (A-PLAT) and the Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Information Platform (AP-PLAT).
Participants from Thailand and Indonesia gave presentations on the current state of adaptation policies in their respective countries, and the current situation and future plans for adaptation platforms were discussed.
NIES gave presentations on the development of A-PLAT and AP-PLAT, while the Mizuho Information & Research Institute gave a presentation on WebGIS.
Productive discussions were held, not only about the development of A-PLAT and AP-PLAT, but also technical issues associated with WebGIS.
Members of NIES plan to visit Thailand and Indonesia for follow-up training in the 2018 fiscal year, which is expected to be a fruitful training based on the outcomes of this opportunity.
