Climate Change

Climatological evidence indicates the planet is entering into a phase of significant warming. Many governing bodies around the world are responding by enacting policies to reduce human contributions to climate change, mitigate present-day hazards, and address climate-related problems that could impact future generations. IAI assists agencies in these efforts by supplying its human-centered knowledge and approach to environmental impact assessment and planning efforts worldwide. In particular, IAI has contributed to the understanding that human vulnerability to climate change is rooted in a variety of social and political factors, and that addressing the complex human dimension of climate change is among the most pressing challenges of our time.
