In order 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, NOA’s International Research and Applications Project (IRAP) selected six new two-year projects following a highly competitive funding competition, totaling $1.5 million. These awards focus on the subseasonal to seasonal timescale, and directly support the work of 33 people (including scientists, staff, postdocs and grad students) and 13 institutions. In addition, these projects advance the work of over 20 collaborating institutions concerned with climate and health at the local, national and international levels.”
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.
