Host: 14th Symposium on Societal Applications: Policy, Research and Practice

A changing climate on our planet implies a new strategic landscape, one that relies on a global and interdisciplinary network with open team of teams to identify risks and seize the ever-changing opportunities. Experts around the world are recognizing the importance of partnerships, collaborations, and engagement to enable exchange of expertise to advance resilience efforts. New frameworks have been identified, built on teamwork, leadership, and interdisciplinary collaborations that involve scientific communities with business and industry leaders, policy makers with commissioners, and thought leaders with practitioners.

To build the global case for resilience research, engineering, and investment, there is a need to share expertise and stories from the global enterprise on uses and applications of environmental information for decision-making. This session presents a global network of providers of data, solution providers, organizations, and industry experts who will share their stories on the use of environmental data, needs and requirements, assessment of climate impacts, and examples of innovative climate solutions to foster advancement in adaptation and resilience.
