This specialized one-and-a-half-day NOAA data users conference will focus on identifying recommendations and
requirements of the energy, insurance, and transportation sectors data and information needs for a climate
that is changing now and is expected to change in the future.
This effort is intended to:
- identify and explore the challenges and opportunities that changing climate conditions present for
businesses and state and local governments in energy, transportation and insurance;
- better understand the current state of scientific understanding of climate change;
- determine the energy, insurance, and transportation sectors' emerging data and information needs
to better respond to a changing climate versus a stable climate;
- explore NOAA's capabilities to meet those requirements and develop strategies to leverage and
enhance those capabilities for the energy, insurance, and transportation sectors.
