Leveraging Climate Data and Services to Manage Climate Change
Climate change will have serious, pervasive, and unavoidable effects on economic and national security. Managing these consequences, and mitigating them when possible, is a new and difficult task for governments.
The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) hosted an event on leveraging climate data and services to manage climate change and the creation of a national climate service. The event focused on what must be done to improve our ability to collect, aggregate, and share accurate data and make it broadly accessible to decisionmakers, industry, academics, and the public at large.
