The NOAA Blue Carbon Inventory Project harnesses capabilities across NOAA and the U.S. Government to provide international technical assistance and peer-to-peer learning focused on coastal blue carbon, ecosystem services (including co-benefits for adaptation and mitigation), and coastal resilience.
CPO/IRAP-Funded Researchers Hold Training and Stakeholder Engagement on New Disease Monitoring and Forecasting Tool
Researchers funded by CPO’s Climate and Societal Interactions (CSI) Division utilize partnerships and engagement activities to develop knowledge and decision support tools that can better address the risk management needs of specific sectors and stakeholders.
The webinar will highlight an ongoing International Research and Applications Project-funded project to explore trends in historical heat extremes and heat-related mortality and morbidity in the border cities of San Diego-Tijuana and Calexico-Mexicali, as well as the reach and effectiveness of heat-health messaging by area National Weather Service Offices and public health agencies.
Upcoming Workshop on Building Knowledge about the Intersections of Public Health Issues, Hurricanes, and Heat
A team of researchers supported by CPO’s International Research and Applications Project (IRAP) will convene the one-day workshop in Puerto Rico in February 2020.
The seminar took place on Wednesday, October 2nd from 10-11am EST.
Seminar: A Next-Gen Monitoring and Forecasting System for Environmental Suitability of Aedes-borne Disease Transmission
IRAP will host the seminar/webinar on September 4th to present important research for health sector decision makers.
Workshop report now available: Building Public Health Resilience to Severe Weather in a Changing Climate
This workshop builds on previous investments by IRAP and NOAA in the Caribbean, and provides linkages to ongoing efforts in NOAA and the USGCRP to address climate and health, including heat health.
NOAA’s Climate Program Office Conducts Public Webinar on Climate, Environment and Health Funding Opportunity
NOAA is engaged in a partnership with NSF, NIH, USDA and agencies from 8 other countries to reduce risk in the public health sector through the use of climate-related knowledge and information tools and services; this allows us to leverage millions of dollars of investment from other countries in high priority topics to the US.
This research proposes a heat early warning system that could save thousands of lives in Bangladesh and beyond.
CPO is releasing its 2016 Annual Report, which gives an overview of FY16 achievements and highlights the great work done by CPO Divisions and Programs to advance scientific understanding of climate and improve society’s ability to plan and respond.
