Mobilizing GIS to Boost Climate Resilience

Stuart Parkerson Stuart Parkerson in Enterprise Thursday, August 6, 2015

From droughts and tsunamis to heat waves and earthquakes, extreme weather and geologic events caused by climate change jeopardize the world’s infrastructure and resources. Will your health be next?

The health risks associated with climate change are already evident. For example, over the past three decades, the percentage of Americans with asthma has more than doubled. Understanding the geography of climate change is critical to mitigating detrimental health effects and creating a vibrant and sustainable future.

Esri is committed to helping communities work smarter to become more livable and, as a result, more resilient to climate change. That’s why Esri has launched the Human Health and Climate Change App Challenge.

Esri health and human services specialist Angelica Baltazar explains how GIS can help protect vulnerable solutions from climate change.
