Can you talk about what the Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast (CCRUN), one of your newer initiatives, has done?

CCRUN does stakeholder-driven research on climate variability and change in the urban Northeast from Boston to Philadelphia. It has provided regional climate change projections, and we’re working with stakeholders in the region to develop resilience.

We’re working with mayors’ offices in each of the major cities, metropolitan water utilities, health departments, and disaster managers to provide actionable climate information.
