Data Revolution for Climate Resilience

  • Ford Foundation 320 E 43rd St New York, New York USA

This high-level event will recognize the importance of public-private partnerships in catalyzing data-informed decision making on climate resilience. It will feature ministerial-level leaders from governments, company CEOs and representatives from foundations, academia and civil society who will highlight progress underway to develop innovative solutions and joint action to improve climate-resilience planning and action. The goal of the event will be to secure commitments to mobilize civil society and the public and private sectors to improve data use for climate resilience management, accelerate efforts to expand open access to climate-relevant datasets through a distributed network, and work across the public and private sectors to provide local communities with easy access to the best available and most relevant data for climate risk assessment and planning.
