Experts are monitoring the development of one of the largest El Niño events of the last 50 years, and notably, the largest since the 1997-98 event that shocked global food, water, health, energy and disaster-response systems. The current El Niño is expected to peak by the end of the calendar year. It offers a unique opportunity for governments, scientists, economists, humanitarian agencies, development professionals and the media to define the research and development agenda for enhanced climate resilience and sustainable development.

To seize this opportunity, the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI), part of Columbia University’s Earth Institute, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will convene the El Niño 2015 Conference from November 17-18, 2015 in New York.

The conference materials are being updated on this page per individual presenters’ approval. To request specific material or information please contact Dannie Dinh at ude.aibmuloc.irinull@ecnerefnoc5102oninle
