Leveraging interdisciplinary expertise and world-class capabilities, UMD's Climate Finance & Risk Management Program has created a unique, integrated approach to climate change analysis across various scientific, financial and risk management disciplines. The College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences and the Smith School of Business have joined together to provide mid-career, senior management and board members of financial and nonfinancial companies, federal, state, and local managers and executives and nonprofits with the concepts and tools to improve their organization’s ability to disclose, measure, manage and oversee the impacts on climate change on their activities.  Learn how to interpret weather and climate information and how to integrate that information into financial and risk management disclosures and assessments to support operational, planning, and risk management decisions.
