Achievements of ANCST in 2017


Since its establishment, the Asian Network on Climate Science and Technology (ANCST) has assembled some 800 scientists in Asia, comprising researchers, policy-makers, private sector practitioners and early career researchers, through 28 workshops and associated events. The five Special Topic Groups of ANCST have enabled enhanced connectivity between scientists of multiple disciplines and age cohorts working on climate issues in Asia. Key climate science and technology topics advanced by ANCST include monsoon dynamics, land-sea interactions, climate change effects on the urban environment, and climate-driven disaster risk reduction and resilience.

ANCST and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia’s Southeast Asia Disaster Prevention Research Initiative (SEADPRI-UKM) would like to acknowledge the support of the Cambridge Malaysian Education and Development Trust (CMEDT) and Malaysian Commonwealth Studies Centre (MCSC) for providing seed-funding to establish the network and its operations. The support of the Advisory Committee on Protection of the Sea (ACOPS), the Guy Carpenter Asia-Pacific Climate Impact Centre, City University of Hong Kong and the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore & Indian Institute of Technology Delhi is also much appreciated. National and international partners of ANCST who have co-financed workshops and other activities are also gratefully acknowledged.
