National Training Workshop on the Application of Climate Change Impact and Vulnerability Assessments for Tunisia

Within the framework of RICCAR’s capacity building and institutional strengthening activities, this workshop was organized by ESCWA in collaboration with ACSAD with the support of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and was held from 24 to 28 June 2019 at the Ministry of Agriculture, Water Resources and Fisheries in Tunis, Tunisia. Its objective was to strengthen the capacity of government officials and policy advisors form Tunisia in the use of RCM and RHM outputs in a GIS environment to inform climate change analysis and climate action at the regional, national and sub-national levels. The issues tackled during the workshop were the following: Enhance the understanding of climate data and their NetCDF format; provide practical knowledge of the use of climate data and applications thereof; utilize climate data NetCDF files to create raster files and tabular datasets; demonstrate how to access and view geospatial datasets and databases; develop capacity to draw upon GIS tools and datasets to formulate, structure and oversee the conduct of climate change assessments.

About Riccar


The central aim of this Regional Knowledge Hub is to provide access to information that can facilitate cooperation, coordination, dialogue and exchange among Arab States, organizations and stakeholder and to support awareness raising as well as regional networking and exchange on issues related to climate change and water resources in the region. Access to RICCAR assessment findings and associated datasets is being made available on this Regional Knowledge Hub, which is comprised of two open-access components: a website and a data portal. This online platform complements, and builds upon, the findings and processes already presented in the main report and its technical annex, as well as the series of publications that elaborate further on the work being pursued collectively under RICCAR.
