Center for Climate Change Adaptation
The Center for Climate Change Adaptation (CCCA) works to promote adaptation and research related to climate change adaptation at the National Institute for Environmental Studies.[NOTICE] CCCA will not be able to access during JAN. 8 to JAN. 10 due to maintenance.


In order to promote measures for adapting to climate change in Japan, the CCCA is making various efforts such as promoting development of platforms for information related to the impacts of and adaptation to climate change and providing technical information useful for local climate change adaptation planning and adaptation measures together with the relevant organizations.

Therefore, we maintain a variety of information for domestic use on the Climate Change Adaptation Information Platform (commonly referred to as A-PLAT) as described below. We have also developed the Asia-Pacific Climate Change Information Platform (AP-PLAT) to contribute to promoting adaptation measures in the Asia-Pacific region.

  • Climate Change Adaptation Information Platform

    "The aim of A-PLAT is to provide information on climate change and scientific knowledge in relation to the observation and monitoringof the impacts of climate change, the assessment of future impacts and adaptation strategies to a broad audience in an easy-to-usemanner."

  • Asia-Pacific Adaptation Information Platform(AP-PLAT)

    Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Information Platform (AP-PLAT) is a web-based information platform, the main mission of which is to facilitate climate change adaptation in the Asia-Pacific region.
    AP-PLAT offers wide-ranging information and tools on the topic of climate change, its effects, and adaptation initiatives. Examples of AP-PLAT’s offerings include ClimoCast, which is a tool for viewing the latest climate projection data, Climate Impact Viewer, which is a map-based tool that displays the effects of climate change in various aspects, and ClimoKit, a system that lets the users search for functional tools and data for climate change adaptation. Other services offered by AP-PLAT include e-learning content that is designed to enhance adaptive competency, provision of information that can be utilized for adaptation planning, and distribution of news on global daptation events.


We conduct research that contributes to strategies for adaptive measures including observation and monitoring research of the impacts of climate change on natural ecosystems, soil, water, and the atmosphere and evaluation research on the future impacts of climate change.
