Brookings – Mitigating climate risk through localized data

All U.S. communities will face disruptions to our daily lives from climate change, but the nature, frequency, and severity of these disruptions will vary widely across places over time. Predicting the impacts of climate events on communities—damage to homes, businesses, transportation, and water infrastructure systems—is becoming an increasingly important and sophisticated part of real estate and financial services industries. But two types of consumers who would greatly benefit from local climate risk data—households and local governments—still have limited access to this information.

On Wednesday, February 15, Brookings Metro will host an event featuring business leaders and policymakers examining how households and public officials could better use local climate risk data, exploring the current availability of relevant data, and outlining several challenges facing public and private data providers.
