The MORS analytics community is coming together next week for an important meeting on the role of analytics in national security and climate change preparedness. The goal of the meeting is to identify ways that analytics can be used to improve our understanding of climate change and its potential effects on national security. This information will help us develop a roadmap and analytical agenda that will support both areas.
The importance of this meeting cannot be overstated. Climate change has the potential to cause all sorts of problems for nations around the world, from increased natural disasters to political unrest. With countries around the world just now starting to come to grips with the implications of this impact, it’s more important than ever that we have a strong foundation in our analytics approach in place.
This meeting is an important step in developing that foundation. By bringing together some of the top minds internationally in analytics and climate change, we can start to develop a better understanding of how these two fields intersect and what steps need to be taken in order to prepare for the future in both what and how to model and the data that supports that modeling.
CANA is excited to support this event. It’s sure to be an informative event that will help us all take the necessary steps towards national security plus climate change preparedness. If you plan on attending in person be sure to look us up. Renee Carlucci and Walt DeGrange will be attending and representing Team CANA.
