Columbia Climate Action Collective is looking for a consultant based in China

March 18, 2022

Columbia Climate Action Collective is a global network of stakeholders who will work together to identify key climate challenges that Columbia can help tackle through its teaching, research, and global programming.

Mapping current experiences and anticipated effects of climate change over the next decade, combined with soliciting inputs into gaps in knowledge as well as desired interventions, will be fundamental to shaping the way forward. Such insights from a diversity of individuals and groups are fundamental to shaping future activities and directions in climate response and will help the University target its engagement with actions to address climate change.

The purpose of this effort is to convene a global climate-focused network of actors to generate regional insights and perspectives on key climate challenges, gaps in knowledge, and desired interventions.
