Journal, Earth Perspectives: Transdisciplinarity Enabled on the role of the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) in Shaping Climate Services
A Special Issue of the Journal, Earth Perspectives: Transdisciplinarity Enabled on the role of the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) in Shaping Climate Services was published on June 14th, 2014. The articles are open source and available online at: http://www.earth-perspectives.com/series/SLCS
 
NOAA catalyzed the establishment of the IRI in the mid-1990s, and supported its work for over15 years; NOAA/CPO/CSI continues rely upon the technical expertise and experiences of the IRI, as the institution joins the University of Arizona as one of the Co-leads of the recently established IRAP endeavor. The first essay in this special issue describes the US interest in investing in this type of work, and outlines the IRAP as a next phase in our activities.  For additional information, please contact Lisa Farrow Vaughan at Lisa.Vaughan@noaa.gov.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
