Watch: Using Climate Information to Boost Resiliency


The International Research Institute for Climate and Society and its partners work in some of the most impoverished areas of the world to increase food security, decrease vulnerability to disasters and predict outbreaks of diseases such as malaria. IRI helps bring historical climate data online, monitor present conditions, and look to the future with forecasts and models. It also gives experts and decision makers the access and training they need to be able to use this climate information effectively and with measurable impact.

A new animation explains IRI’s approach to building and maintaining climate resiliency. Head over to the institution’s web site to learn more.
