WRI provides resources for crafting new, decision-relevant analytic products and information tools that help decision-makers take action.
What information can best support effective decision-making under climate uncertainty? How should information be “packaged” so that governments and citizens can use it effectively? WRI is working to improve the information base for innovative decision-making strategies within a context of climatic uncertainty. Our work ensures that decision-makers – from small-scale farmers, to city mayors, to national-level ministers – have the information they need to take action against climate risks.
Project: Adapting to Climate Uncertainty in South Asia
Governments, business and citizens in South Asia all need access to good information to make wise decisions in a changing climate. However, the uncertainty of climate change impacts, the complex drivers of vulnerability, and the multiple time scales of climate impacts all make the information needs for adaptation unclear. As countries in South Asia move forward with adaptation planning, sound policy-making will require improvements in both, information availability and decision-making practice.
