An Introduction to CRAVe: A Climate Registry for the Assessment of Vulnerability

The Climate Registry for the Assessment of Vulnerability (CRAVe) is a new web-based community resource that houses information on assessments of the vulnerability of various natural and human resources to a changing climate. Vulnerability assessments are important for identifying resources that are most likely to be affected by climate change and providing insights on why certain resources are vulnerable. Consequently, they provide valuable information for informing climate change adaptation planning. CRAVe allows users to enter information about their vulnerability assessments and includes a public search of existing assessments for specific geographic regions, assessment targets or endpoints, managing entities, and other factors.

Global Climathon 2015 in Boston

Boston has been chosen to participate in the Global Climathon 2015, an intercontinental hackathon event to find innovative, city-level solutions to climate change problems.
