NERC and the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC) invited applications from UK scientists to attend a networking workshop for the Understanding of the Impacts of Hydrometeorological Hazards programmes which NERC has developed with partner funding agencies in Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand and the Philippines.

The workshop was held in Jakarta, Indonesia on 10-11 October 2017 and was hosted by the Ministry of Research, Technology & Higher Education of the Republic of Indonesia (Ristekdikti). Over two days the aims of the networking workshop were:

  1. To launch the five Understanding of the Impacts of Hydrometeorological Hazards in South East Asia programme interdisciplinary calls and present an overview of the call aims and objectives.
  2. To facilitate links between the UK and Southeast Asian research communities in the area of hydrometeorological hazards by providing an opportunity for researchers to network and begin to develop ideas to address the aims of the call.

Applications were received from a range of environmental science, economic and social science researchers working in the fields of hydrometeorological hazards, including floods, droughts, landslides and related disciplines. Twenty UK participants were invited to attend from a range of different disciplines and institutions.
