Climate Impacts in Central Asia
The “ClimateImpactsOnline” portal is a result of research on climate impact for different sectors (agriculture, forestry, hydrology, energy and tourism) developed at the Potsdam Institute for Impact Research Climate (PIK). Within the portal, parameters such as temperature, crop yields or forest fire risk can be selected and displayed for various time periods. The selected parameters are shown as a color map and detailed representations can be accessed via three integrated zoom levels by clicking on selected regions. In addition, the portal provides teaching materials, background information and a glossary. PIK released the first version of the portal for Germany in 2013 and made available the versions for Peru, India and Tanzania by 2021. Meanwhile, the Sahel region and Central Asia are available as well. To be updated on the most recent developments, you can join the ClimateImpactsOnline mailing list.
