Description: Environmental Intelligence is the integration of Environmental data and knowledge and Artificial Intelligence to provide the meaningful insight to inform decision-making, improved risk management, and the technological innovation that will lead us towards a sustainable interaction with the natural environment. The Climate Impacts Mitigation, Adaption and Resilience (CLIMAR) framework uses Data Science and AI to integrate multiple sources of data to quantify the risks of climate change on populations, infrastructure and the economy. Models for climate related hazards (e.g. increased frequency of extreme weather events, flooding, summer temperatures, wind speeds) are integrated with data and models for whether individual ‘assets’ (e.g. electricity substations, windfarms, roads, vulnerable members of the population) are exposed and, given exposure, the extent to which they are vulnerable to those hazards. The CLIMAR framework provides the ability to quantify and visualise the effects of changes in our environment at highly localised levels and, through integration with economic and operational models, to run virtual scenarios in which the effects of potential mitigation and adaptation measures can be assessed. Examples include energy system security, transportation, telecommunications, agriculture, critical infrastructure, and health. This ability is going to be crucial across a wide variety of sectors in designing pathways to Net-Zero and enhancing our resilience to climate change.
