In December of 2007 the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) at Columbia University’s Earth Institute formed a partnership with the Interna­tional Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).

Through this collaboration, IRI works to understand the needs of the IFRC and provide accessible and relevant climate information to support humanitarian decisions. Published in 2009.
