Climate Information Needs for Financial Decision Making
Monday, June 3, 2013 at 8:00 AM - Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at 12:30 PM (EDT)
The primary goals for this event are to make the climate community more aware of the information needs of financial decision-makers, to increase awareness among financial decision-makers of the potential benefits of using climate information, and to create new ways of enabling climate scientists and financial decision-makers to collaborate effectively.
We will look for instances where climate information has been used in financial analysis, and where climate information hasn’t been used because it is inadequate for financial analysis. Ultimately, we will assess what is necessary to make climate information adequate for financial analysis.
This workshop will be organized by the American Meteorological Society (AMS), in partnership with the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR). The event is being supported, in part, by the Department of Energy’s Climate and Environmental Sciences Division.
