Climate and Societal Interactions

Funding Agency:
Department of Commerce

 

he mission of the NOAA Climate and Societal Interactions (CSI) research portfolio is to inform improvements in planning and preparedness in diverse socio-economic regions and sectors throughout the U.S. and abroad via the integration of knowledge and information about extreme weather and climate. Our research advances the nation’s understanding of climate-related risks and vulnerabilities across sectors and regions - within and beyond our borders - and the development of tools to foster more informed decision making. These efforts support NOAA's vision to create and sustain enhanced resilience in ecosystems, communities, and economies. The overall objectives of the CSI portfolio are the following:

1. Support innovative, applicable, and transferable approaches for decision making, especially for risk characterization in the context of a variable and changing climate;

2. Establishment of a network of regionally scoped, long-term efforts to inform climate risk management and decision making; and

3. Promotion of the transfer of climate knowledge, tools, products, and services within NOAA, across the federal government, nationally, and internationally.
