29-30 November 2022 (online)
ADRC participates annually in the Integrated Workshops (IWS) of the Typhoon Committee, where year-end reports are presented by the four working groups: the Working Group on Meteorology (WGM), the Working Group on Hydrology (WGH), the Working Group on Disaster Risk Reduction (WGDRR), and the Training and Research Coordination Group (TRCG). This year, the Typhoon Committee Secretariat (TCS) held the 17th IWS online on 29-30 November 2022 with the theme "Tropical cyclone planning, forecasting, and response services for early warning and early action."
One of the keynote presentations was from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) of Japan, which talked about the "Use of Satellite Data for Flood Simulation and Risk Evaluation." As reported, various Japanese agencies (e.g., JAXA), with which ADRC also works closely, provide satellite data and create climate change impact projections to simulate floods and assess risk impacts. Satellite data is especially valuable as it informs mitigation measures and also facilitates early action. Other keynote presentations at the 17th IWS were given by presenters from Vietnam, China, South Korea, and the Asia-Pacific Typhoon Collaborative Research Centre.
The 18th IWS in 2023 will be hosted at ESCAP in Bangkok, Thailand.
