Impact assessments develop technologies for assessing climate change impacts and adaptation measures, based on the downscaling projection results from Theme 2. Specifically, downscaling projection results provided from Theme 2 are utilized as climate scenarios with consideration of socioeconomic scenarios from social implementation organizations when necessary. It develops comprehensive methods for creating information on climate change impact assessments, which consider the effectiveness of adaptation measures at 1-km resolution up to the next few years or decades (around year 2030).
SI-CAT collaborating organizations develop applications, which enable the persons responsible for reviewing the adaptation measures of local governments to utilize the results and technologies developed by SI-CAT. The applications such as visualization utility will be developed to provide them with easy-to-use processed data in the Data Integration and Analysis System.
