Cornell joins global research university climate alliance
By Blaine Friedlander
Cornell University has a long-standing commitment to help lead the fight against climate change, and on April 2 it became a founding member of the International Universities Climate Alliance.
The IUCA, which includes 41 universities on six continents, was formed in an effort to share research insights and develop networks among the world’s top scientists. The group was created and organized by Ian Jacobs, president and vice chancellor of the University of New South Wales, in Sydney, Australia.
Faculty from member institutions will work to identify effective ways to communicate research-based climate change science, global warming impact, mitigation strategies and climate adaptation to educators, business leaders, policymakers and the public.
