The Columbia Initiative on Extreme Weather and Climate will be focused on understanding the risks to human life and property from extreme weather events, both in the present and future climates, and in developing solutions to mitigate those risks. The Initiative engages the broad and deep expertise that exists across Columbia University on all aspects of this problem. With partners in the private sector, government, and academia, we will work towards the goal of greater societal resilience to extreme events.
