ABRI, the Arizona Business Resilience Initiative, provides support to Arizona’s business community to help planning and decision-making efforts regarding climate risk. Our primary deliverable is a risk-management/opportunity assessment tailored to our partner’s business goals, customer base, and management strategies.
The initiative has three strategic goals:
- Develop methods to assess business opportunities and manage risks associated with climate change and climate variability.
- Build new avenues for engagement between the University of Arizona and the private sector.
- Apply UA resources and expertise to develop a replicable framework and robust process with participating businesses that will significantly enhance their ability to react and respond to climate risks specifically, and the private sector’s resilience to anticipated global changes more generally.
