The NOAA Climate Program Office’s (CPO) Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program supports research teams that help regions and communities better prepare and plan for hazards and extreme events. RISA teams conducts innovative, interdisciplinary, user-inspired, and regionally relevant research that informs resource management and public policy. Central to the RISA approach are commitments to process, partnership, and trust building. CPO funds eleven different RISA teams across the United States (US) and Pacific Islands, many of which are a model for interdisciplinary science and assessment. This section contains the details of the RISA competition for FY 2018. We are soliciting proposals to fund one RISA team focused on the South Central region in the US where there are ongoing RISA activities.

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 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.
