Unlocking Climatic Insights: The Central Asia Information Portal (CACIP) in the Age of AI

Publication date: 29 May 2024

Chief Operations Officer at SCiO Panagiotis Zervas shared his vision for an Al-enabled CACIP at the CACCC-2024 Panel Session “The Climate Adaptation and Mitigation Program for Aral Sea Basin (CAMP4ASB): Achievements, Lessons Learned, and Future Directions”.

“With the proposed implementation, CACIP will offer its users enhanced capabilities, including automated analysis of content (Le. project summaries) within the portal, climate change forecasts and risk assessments for floods and droughts, based on integrated portal data and additional climate information,” said Panagiotis Zervas.

Besides, AI will provide brief analytical notes on user-specified topics or regions generated from summaries, descriptions, ог reports available in the portal.

“For example, AI may give comprehensive summarizations of portal content in response to prompts such as “How many women benefited from projects in the Central Asia region?” noted Panagiotis Zervas. 

The Central Asia Climate Change Conference (CACCC-2024) is organized by the Regional Environmental Centre for Central Asia (CAREC) within the “Climate Adaptation and Mitigation Program in the Aral Sea Basin AF” (CAMP4ASB AF), Central Asia Water and Energy Program (CAWEP), and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, in cooperation with The Global Partnership for Sustainable and Resilient Landscapes (PROGREEN), NDC Partnership (NDCP), Coalition for Capacity on Climate Action (C3A), Asia Development Bank (ADB), Asia Development Institute (ADBI), International Organization for Migration (IOM), International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), SWITCH-Asia— a programme funded by the European Union, the Kazakh-German University (DKU), Green Academy along with valuable support provided from other partners.

The CAMP4ASB AF project is implemented by CAREC together with EC IFAS with the financial support of the World Bank and the Green Climate Fund.

The Central Asia Water and Energy Program (CAWEP) is a partnership between the World Bank, the European Union, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom aimed at creating conditions for improving water and energy security at the regional level and in beneficiary countries in a changing climate.
