The Oasis Platform for Climate and Catastrophe Risk Assessment in Asia project is co-developing new and open catastrophe risk models for flood in the Philippines and cyclone in Bangladesh and analysing the impacts of climate change. The models are being developed on the open-source Oasis Loss Modelling platform. The project is supported by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), bringing together a multinational public-private partnership to build solutions to understand and manage the increasing costs of disasters https://www.international-climate-initiative.com/en/nc/details/project/oasis-platform-for-climate-and-catastrophe-risk-assessment-asia-18_II_165-3018/.
A key goal of the project is linking in-country scientific expertise and data with international expertise in catastrophe risk modelling to build capacity in the country for catastrophe and climate risk modelling and analysis. This will develop the ability in each country to maintain and develop new risk models using open-source technology and to take ownership of their risk understanding in the long term. As part of the capacity building program, the Potsdam Institute of Climate Impact Research (PIK) and the Institute of Water and Flood Management (IWFM) of the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) recently conducted a 3-day capacity building workshop on Climate Data Processing and Analysis. The workshop took place from June 19thto 21st, 2019 at the IWFM/BUET in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
