KEYNOTE: Responding to Climate Change through Geo Data

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Humanity is faced with numerous ecological sustainability challenges at an unprecedented magnitude and scale with climate change being the most serious and pervasive globally. Simultaneously, spatially explicit data and information needed to effectively respond are being generated at an enormous rate, but too little of it is finding its way into day-to-day decision making. To bridge science and action, the Conservation Biology Institute pioneered Databasin.org to enable integration and collaboration of climate and other geo data. Through the power of geo data and mapping, this talk will highlight examples of how climate change and related data can be used to plan for change. Successfully addressing this need, which encourages broad participation, will lead to better health, greater wealth, and higher global security.
