Bridging the Gap: Climate Data for Business Innovation
 
Business leaders and investors are increasingly demanding better information about 
 
the risks and opportunities associated with a changing climate. However, despite 
 
the plethora of climate data available today, there are many challenges in ensuring

scientists, and the government work together to create tools and methodologies to 
 
make the most of Big Data in the climate space?
