Regional climate models can inform detailed impact assessments and planning in vulnerable regions such as South Asia. As part of efforts to build institutional capacities regarding climate change analysis in the region, we got together with partners, including the UK’s Met Office, to organise a training on ‘Spatial and temporal analysis of climate change using CORDEX regional climate models for Bangladesh’. This training programme deepened the participants’ understanding of global and regional climate models, Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX) data sets, data extraction, R programming language, and the assessment of future climate scenarios. Thirteen professionals from the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) and the Institute of Water Modelling, Dhaka participated in the event. Our co-organisers included the World Climate Research Programme, the CORDEX office, the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI), BMD, and the Centre for Climate Change Research at the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, Pune.
