Climate R3 Workshop to be held in Perth in late May

The Second Climate Regional Readiness Review (Climate R3) workshop will be held from the 22nd to the 25th of May 2012 in Perth, and will be held together with the APRSAF Space Applications for Environment (SAFE).

The 2nd Climate R3 workshop will further develop the Climate R3 initiative which was born out of an Australian proposal at the Asia-Pacific Regional Space Agency Forum (APRSAF) -17 held in Melbourne in 2010. The initiative is aimed at undertaking a regional readiness review for Key Climate Missions, and determining the ability of APRSAF countries to benefit from space derived data and information.

SAFE aims to establish prototype platforms for the development of solution (service) oriented application systems for climate change mitigation and adaptation by using space based earth observation technology. This workshop will report on the five on-going prototyping projects endorsed by APRSAF and review possible new prototyping projects.

The Australian Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research & Tertiary Education and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) will co-host the second Climate R3.For further information, head over to the Climate R3 webpage here.
