Reducing Climate Risk

From the coastal effects of sea level rise to catastrophic droughts, urban and rural dwellers alike face increasing risks from climate change. While urban systems and infrastructure must be resilient to rising seas and increasing climate extremes, improved financial security for developing world farmers is essential to reducing climate-induced human migration into cities that would overwhelm urban environments. Cornell Atkinson is innovating technology, financial instruments, and policy to reduce greenhouse gas concentrations and mitigate the impact of droughts, floods, storms, and wildfires, while adapting agriculture and the built environment for a low-carbon future.
