Study Calls for Clearer Communication of Climate Data

The question of how to improve communication between the the science community and emergency managers was a major focus of a Climate and Risk Management Workshop held at DEMA on July 13, 2016. Nalini Chhetri, a Sr. Sustainability Scientist at the Wrigley Institute, was one of five lead investigators whose job was to help improve how climate science data—and the extremes it portends—is presented so as to inspire increased investment in risk mitigation and planning for severe weather events.
