ARSET - Building Climate Risk Assessments from Local Vulnerability and Exposure
Sept. 19, 2023
Sept. 21, 2023
This ARSET Training will describe climate risk assessment approaches that originate with stakeholder expertise in the fundamental climate vulnerability and exposure of their system. By identifying at-risk assets and the types of climate conditions that drive problematic responses, stakeholders and scientists can co-develop risk information targeting specific climatic impact-drivers and utilizing climate observations and projections sets selected to suitably address those risks. The training will provide an assessment and engagement framework and utilize examples from the NASA Climate Adaptation Science Investigators (CASI) Program that is preparing NASA facilities for future climate resilience.
This training is primarily intended for local, state, federal, and international entities, including public and private sector organizations to use NASA Earth observations and modeled climate projection datasets for integration into their climate change-related work in different sectors.
By the end of this training attendees will be able to:
- Theory: Plan for a risk assessment tailored to their system of interest.
- Resources: Identify NASA resources for climate risk assessment.
- Contextual: Recognize the importance of developing contextual intervention strategies for specific stakeholder decisions.
- Demonstration: Connect climate risk information to specific vulnerabilities and exposed assets to support climate action decision processes in their
