The Extreme Heat Risk Webinar Series hosted by the NOAA Climate Program Office (CPO) focuses on integrating research and applications across the many programs within CPO by focusing on 4 climate risk areas: coastal inundation, marine ecosystems, water resources, and extreme heat.
The third webinar in the series, “Decision Support Research on Climate-Sensitive Health Risks: Highlights from the NOAA Climate Program Office’s (CPO) Climate and Societal Interactions Division (CSI),” highlights research results of select heat-related projects funded by the NOAA CPO CSI division’s International Research and Applications Program (IRAP) from FY18 – 20. This interdisciplinary research competition sought 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. CSI programs include the Adaptation Sciences (AdSci) research program that advances research needed to move society beyond incremental adaptation toward more widespread, connected, adaptive pathways and resilience strategies, and Climate Adaptation Partnerships (CAP, formerly known as RISA) which advances equitable adaptation through sustained regional research and community engagement. AdSci’s portfolio of international research and engagement activities builds on the networks and insights generated by the IRAP program.
The webinar will be held on January 19, 2023 from 3:00 – 4:00 PM EST.
