Reinventing climate change adaptation: The Climate Resilience Early Warning System (CREWSnet)

The Jameel Observatory Climate Resilience Early Warning System (Jameel Observatory-CREWSnet) is one MIT's Climate Grand Challenges 2022 flagship projects, and aims to reinvent climate change adaptation with a cutting-edge forecasting system that empowers underserved communities to interpret local climate risk, proactively plan for their futures by incorporating resilience strategies and minimise losses. Developed under a partnership between BRAC, MIT and Community Jameel and led by co-director of the Jameel Observatory, Professor Elfatih Eltahir, alongside John Aldridge and Deborah Campbell, Jameel Observatory-CREWSnet will initially be demonstrated in southwestern Bangladesh, serving as a model for similarly threatened regions around the world.
