WHO WE ARE?

In 2014, the Research Centre for Tropical Climate Change System (or IKLIM, β€˜Climate’ in Malay) has been restructured under the Institute for Climate Change (IPI), UKM. IKLIM is a dedicated research center for advancing knowledge on the physical basis and impacts of regional climate change, particularly in Malaysia and the Southeast Asia region. In the realization that climate change is a global issue, IKLIM also extends its collaboration with other international institutions in climate change research.
