Forward-thinking leaders need accurate and timely climate data and information to protect their communities. Knowing what’s coming and how to respond allows for informed decisions that prevent impact and reduce risk.
The South-Central United States is one of the most disaster-prone regions in the country, frequently experiencing billion-dollar climate disasters. Some of these weather events are becoming more frequent and more extreme, harming people and property in their wake. Costs of these events are also increasing, negatively impacting economies.
It can be overwhelming to sort through the resources that would help to lessen the impact of climate-related disasters.
At SCIPP, our mission is to help you help your communities by giving you a trusted source of information. We empower leaders by providing climate analyses and information that are relevant, accessible, and actionable. We engage with leaders such as yourself to ensure that our research meets the needs of real people like you.
As an interdisciplinary team with a focus on climate-centric research, we know just how much is at stake. It is incredibly difficult to make big decisions that impact real lives while also navigating bureaucratic priorities.
