Every day, communities and businesses in the United States and around the world grapple with environmental challenges stemming from changing climate conditions and extreme events.
The NOAA Climate Program Office has made it its mission to help people, businesses, and the environment thrive in the face of a changing climate and its impacts.
To this end, CPO released its 2015 Annual Report on March 11, 2016. The report gives an overview of CPO's achievements in FY15 and highlights the great work done by the Office's Divisions and Programs to advance scientific understanding of climate and improve society's ability to plan and respond.
The visually-rich report offers highlights from this year, what's next for the future, and quick stats of resources and achievements, including: new projects funded by CPO in FY15, high-visibility reports and publications, newsletters, and workshops.

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 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
