FY 13-18: Integrating Climate Information and Decision Processes for Regional Resilience

The first IRAP funding was awarded in 2013 to support a core project entitled Integrating Climate Information and Decision Processes for Regional Climate Resilience (2013-2018), which connected the synthesis, interpretation and translation of physical climate information, including monitoring and prediction capabilities, with interdisciplinary applications research on impacts, vulnerabilities and decision making needs and capabilities of information users, and the enhancement of the institutional and technical capacity for the application of climate information to support proactive planning and response in the Caribbean, India and Bangladesh. The primary objective of this initial round of IRAP funding was to enhance societal preparedness in the face of weather to climate-related impacts by fostering the effective development and application of capacity, information and knowledge in the context of current and future adaptation and development paths. The project was designed and implemented through a partnership between the University of Arizona, and the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) of the Columbia University. It was supported by NOAA, with additional support from the US Agency for International Development. A final report is in development and anticipated to be produced by fall of 2019.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
