We describe an emerging collaboration between India and the United States addressing climate resilience. Major objectives include downscaled climate projections for the Indian sub-continent at much higher resolution than currently available, assessing climate risks at the sub-national level, working with local technical institutes in India on capacity building, and engaging local decision-makers in addressing climate information needs and informing planning and climate-resilient sustainable development. We describe the results of ongoing planning activities, technical workshops, and initial efforts to build capacity to integrate downscaled climate projections and shorter-term (seasonal) forecasting products into State and local decision-making associated with development of Indian State Climate Action Plans.
