Climate Change Modeling for Decision Makers
The frequency of extreme weather events has increased exponentially over the past four decades, threatening the homes, livelihoods, and health of millions. While the adverse effects of climate change are increasingly visible, major knowledge gaps limit the ability of policymakers to predict and respond to threats caused by climate shocks. Climate modeling has the potential to rapidly generate reliable evidence on the effects of climate change for programmatic decision making before shocks occur.
On October 27, 2022, AIR held a webinar to explore the role of modeling in climate change programming, discuss AIR’s recent work in crop modeling for food security decision making, and learn from the perspectives of implementers, researchers, data scientists, and funders on climate modeling in their work and the future of programming.
