Objectives of the institute are 1) to identify, engage, and integrate a new generation of scholars and practitioners with on-going activities of major organizations around the relationship between climate change and hazards; 2) to interrelate advanced knowledge domains around links between climate change and hazards in the region using integrative capacities of geographic technologies; and 3) to elaborate a collaborative research and educational agenda that communicates across disciplines and sectors. The institute will offer lectures, demonstrations, technical training, group discussions, and work sessions at the advanced graduate and post-doctoral level and will produce a research agenda, set of white papers, and an online knowledge environment to structure collaboration among participants and to serve as a repository for documents and ideas resulting from the effort. Both the PASI’s structure and the high-caliber lecturers themselves will enable a strong mentoring and peer-support model that increases the level and quality of learning.
