The world is already facing the impacts of climate change through increased severity of natural disasters and events. We are using integrative data science to help agencies respond to these impacts with limited resources through risk, resilience and expenditure profiling. In collaboration with federal agencies like the Economic Development Agency (EDA), we are developing an advanced toolset to help
Federal agencies make decisions about what kind of projects to fund and where to use funds, with respect to improving disaster recovery & resilience
Regional economists and local decision-makers optimize local investments relative to disaster risks and resiliency.
Researchers carry out advanced studies using linked disaster risk, resilience and expenditure data
We are extending this work to help build the Hoosier Resilience Index that will enable Indiana communities adapt to climate change.
