Decision Support Research on Climate-Sensitive Health Risks: Highlights from NOAA's CPO CSI Division
This webinar took place on January 19th and focused on research results of select heat-related projects funded by the NOAA Climate Program Office (CPO) Climate and Societal Interaction (CSI) Division’s International Research and Applications Program (IRAP) from FY18 – 20. This interdisciplinary research competition sought to inform planning and prevention focused on weather and climate-sensitive health risks to U.S. economic, development, scientific and safety interests at home and abroad. Applicants working in transboundary regions of the U.S. were encouraged to partner with teams supported by NOAA’s Climate Adaptation Partnerships, formerly the Regionally Integrated Sciences and Assessments Program (CAP/RISA) program.
CSI’s current portfolio of programs includes includes the Adaptation Sciences (AdSci) research program, which helps advance the knowledge, methods, and frameworks needed to move society beyond incremental adaptation toward more widespread, connected, adaptive pathways and resilience strategies with clear economic and societal co-benefits, and the Climate Adaptation Partnerships, formerly the Regionally Integrated Sciences and Assessments Program (CAP/RISA) program, which advances equitable adaptation through sustained regional research and community engagement. AdSci’s portfolio of international research and engagement activities builds on the networks and insights generated by the IRAP program.
