Infrastructure and the built environment, a crucial sector of the Nation’s economy, is designed, engineered and constructed using weather, climate, and environmental information. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) has been serving this sector for many years.  NCEI engages with this sector to better understand the implications of climate for infrastructure, how different establishments are building resilience and adaptation in planning, how environmental data provides value, and general challenges and opportunities for the infrastructure sector. This Town Hall dialogue will provide an opportunity for further interaction with sector experts along with scientific experts to discuss current techniques, data sets and challenges, and identify requirements to support the sector. The intent is to foster and reinforce the lines of communication and to ensure NCEI is providing information that can lead to improved infrastructure resilience
