Training Manual on the Use of GIS to Analyse Climate Change Data
Lead Author: ESCWA/ACSAD


The present training manual serves as a guide that describes how users can download and utilise climate data developed within the framework of the Regional Initiative for the Assessment of Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources and Socio- Economic Vulnerability in the Arab Region (RICCAR). Although climate data can be used on different platforms for analysis, evaluation using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) tools from ESRI ArcMap is solely considered in this manual.

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.
