Climate change impact analysis is important for the national climate change adaptation plan in Indonesia. This is particularly true for changes in the rainy season and extremes, which impact on the food security and hydro-meteorological disaster in Indonesia. It is still unclear how the seasonal and extreme rainfall change will change in the future in a high resolution perspective and how it will impact the future agriculture production and flooding condition. In the EU-funded Primavera project an ensemble of very high-resolution global climate model simulations (HighResMIP) for the climate up to 2050 is produced. These data are analysed to assess climate change impacts in Indonesia. In this research, we aim to bridge the gap between climate change projection result and policy makers in agriculture and disaster management sectors by post-processing the high-resolution climate projection datasets to actionable information for the national climate change adaptation plan.
