Collaboration Urged for Climate Science and Finance Communities



Increased coordination and collaboration is needed between the climate science community and the financial services industry, according to speakers at a 3–4 June workshop held in Washington, D. C., by the American Meteorological Society (AMS). The AMS workshop brought together business and financial leaders and climate scientists. The financial industry needs climate data for a variety of predictions, but there has been little collaboration between the industry and the climate science community, speakers said.
