Bridging Science and Action: Using Interactive Scenario Tools with Decision Makers

Travis Franck, MIT Sloan School of Management and Climate Interactive
Monday, June 16 @ 12:25pm

ABSTRACT

Climate change science and future climate impacts are uncertain and often hard for decision makers and leaders to grapple with. One solution that has been proven to engage and clarify is interactive decision support tools, or interactive simulators. Dr. Franck will discuss and demonstrate how several of these tools have been develop, who has used them, and the venues of engagement. He will demonstrate tools that test global emission reduction scenarios and project global impacts, test green infrastructure investment to reduce urban flooding, and present a coastal city and hurricane demo simulator. Interactive tools have been used to build consensus across organizational departments, a problem when implementing change policies. The presentation will be interactive, with opportunities to ask questions.
