CCHIP is a web-based tool that uses data from 40 of the most recent Global Climate Models (GCMs) and many other sources, to provide defensible, actionable conclusions about changes across a whole array of climate and severe weather-related conditions.
In modelling and decision support we got from questions to insight and understanding through model development and application. We use models to distil and describe the real-world complexities of the situation and provide meaningful outputs to support the decisions being faced.
Years ago, setting up an in-house video studio was a very costly proposition requiring a high degree of technical mastery. Today, a video studio can be set up for very little investment, in-house staff are often able to operate the camera(s) and do minor edits, and the space required is minimal. A managed in-house video studio consists of a decorated or green screen studio, usually in the 10 to 40 square meter range (100 to 400 square feet), with one or two cameras, three to five LED lights, one or two microphones, probably a modest teleprompter, and a properly equipped computer. For those who wish to have a more complete installation, the investment is not more than a factor of 2 or 3 extra.

All communicators and marketers worry about the meaning of words, phrases, and images used across borders. They rarely mean the same thing. This is especially true and critical in the case of risk communication. One cannot risk a misunderstanding or, worse, an offensive meaning or tone. Message internationalization involves the ability to adapt risk messaging across cultural, educational, and language divides.
Risk Sciences International currently offers several training tracks: Made-to-order courses customized to meet your specific needs; Master classes designed specifically for practicing professionals; Modular, ongoing training programs leading to certifications in risk science; Condensed seminars in risk science with cutting-edge content.
Organizations can become overwhelmed. Suddenly, there is a need for a strong internal relations effort. Often, companies and institutions do not have the requisite staff, either in quantity or training, to face the toughest crises. Or, a larger organization may be caught short handed due to illness or vacancy. Either way, Risk Sciences International is able to provide a temporary scaling up of external relations staff that is specifically trained for delicate and critical circumstances.
