Activity Report

27-28 August 2019 (Bangkok, Thailand)

ADRC participated in the Expert Group Meeting on Sand and Dust Storms, which was organized on 27-28 August 2019 at the United Nations Conference Center in Bangkok, Thailand. Sand and dust storms (SDS) have received priority attention by UNESCAP and pose a formidable challenge to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and targets adopted as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Several ADRC member countries in Central and South Asia have suffered from their impacts. It's important to recognize that climate change will have big impacts on SDS in terms of their area, frequency, and magnitude. ADRC gave a presentation on satellite remote sensing technologies for monitoring SDS and explained its interests in medium and long-term SDS impact assessment simulations that take into account the impacts of climate change.
