  • 1.  CCB Publications - El Niño, Disaster, and Risk Maps

    Posted 12-16-2018 01:19

    Dear Colleagues,

    Below are a set of publications associated with the Consortium for Capacity Building focused on El Niño readiness (El Niño Ready Nations), disaster risk reduction and improvisation, and new ways to map risk. Several of these publications are open Access.

    The Consortium for Capacity Building (http://www.ccb-boulder.org/) is an educational, outreach, and networking organization at the University of Colorado – Boulder. We focus on enhancing the value and use of climate, water, and weather information for the betterment of societies and the wellbeing of individuals.  CCB works in both developed and developing countries to help the most vulnerable societies and populations mitigate and adapt to the impacts of a changing climate. Consortium partners are individuals and institutions working globally on capacity building in weather, water, climate, and society issues.
