Information about the project
Malaysia Climate Change Knowledge Portal
Climate change (CC) is real and happening now. A catastrophe caused by CC is seen as the biggest potential threat to the global economy (WEF, 2016). CC knowledge is paramount important for Government, Private Sector and Industry in tackling social, environment and economics issues exacerbated by global warming through CC impact at regional and local level. The knowledge is primarily created through voluminous of data and information that produced from CC modeling and impact study. It is a comprehensive modeling, analysis and processes for transforming and bridging the said data and information in order to accomplish an acceptable and details CC knowledge for a faster and holistic action plan. Therefore, Malaysia Climate Change (CC) Knowledge portal known as N-HYDAA which is the only CC knowledge portal in Malaysia is primarily developed for providing CC and water-related information, and technology. CC knowledge is crucial for present and future water related business activities, engineering practices and environment particularly for sustainable development. N-HYDAA has eight hydroclimate-environment modules, which amongst others are rainfall, floods, droughts and water stress condition for optimizing insight and foresight of future climate resilience (proofing) using Big Data Analytics (BDA) technology. Furthermore, N-HYDAA has leveraging ICT as enabler to CC knowledge for achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) especially related to SDG No. 6, No.9, No. 11 and No. 13. N-HYDAA has definitely strengthened a required CC platform and mechanism for assisting business entities, water operators, engineers, planners and decision-makers in designing, planning and developing water-related program, risk and disaster management.
