  • analysis of relevant datasets
This program is targeted at all postdocs, advanced graduate students, and early-career professionals in the decisionmaking and policy communities who are working on issues related to climate risk. Potential candidates representing NGOs and state or local agencies are strongly encouraged to apply. 

In most cases, lodging, meals, registration, and travel costs will be fully covered for participants. International applicants are welcomed.
