Consortium on Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast (CCRUN) - RISA

CCRUN is a member of NOAA's Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program, which supports climate research for decision-makers and policy planners at a regional level. The consortium, encompassing the Boston-to-Philadelphia corridor; serving stakeholder needs in assessing and managing risks from climate variability and change. The RISA is structured as a nodal network covering the relevant parts of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania in order to serve local needs for targeted climate-risk information in a coordinated way, with partners from Columbia University, City College of the City University of New York, Stevens Institute of Technology, the University of Massachusetts, and Drexel University.

Convention on Biological Diversity

The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) was formulated in December 1993. At the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, world leaders agreed on a comprehensive strategy for "sustainable development". One of the key agreements adopted at Rio was the CBD. This pact among the vast majority of the world's governments sets out commitments for maintaining the world's ecological systems as while pursuing economic development. The Convention establishes three main goals: the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of its components, and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits from the use of genetic resources.
