MANILA, PHILIPPINES – 14 October 2015: ADB Highlights ICEM Work on Nam Ngiep Dam in Water and Climate Training Session

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) recently hosted a training session for water and urban development professionals to tackle climate change risks, climate risk management, and climate resilient solutions in the water sector.

Climate change is altering the way water development and infrastructure must be approached. Climate risks threaten traditional infrastructure investments and water management processes. Learning how to read climate data and conduct climate risk assessments are keys to creating resilient, effective water interventions.

ICEM’s study on the Nam Ngiep hydropower project provided cutting edge material and stood as the only hydropower example in the session. The presentation below illustrates ICEM’s use of the threat-asset impact pathway approach.

For more information on the Nam Ngiep project, read the project outline or the final report.
