The NOAA Climate Program Office is working closely with USAID and OSTP on the U.S.-initiated public-private partnership on Climate Services for Resilient Development (CSRD), which was originally announced by President Obama during the September 2014 UN Climate Summit.
This novel partnership includes organizations from the private, multilateral development, government and public/NGO sectors (Google, Esri, Skoll Global Threats Fund, American Red Cross, UK Met, UK DFID, Asian Development Bank, InterAmerican Development Bank). We anticipate that this partnership could provide NOAA with opportunities to expand resilience work at the global, regional, national and community levels. This also serves as a U.S. contribution to the Global Framework for Climate Services, of which NOAA has the lead on. NOAA participated in the following three recent CSRD activities.
NOAA coordination into this effort is led by OAR/CPO, in close partnership with NWS/International.

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.
