Co-founded by Rollins instructor Daniel Rochberg, the Georgia Climate Project recently received a $650,000 grant from the Ray C. Anderson Foundation. The grant will provide support to build a network of experts who can improve understanding of climate impacts and solutions and better position Georgia to respond to a changing climate.

“Our universities have tremendous expertise to examine and explore solutions for climate change in the Georgia,” says Dr. Dwight A. McBride, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at Emory University. “This grant offers Georgia institutions an opportunity to leverage our shared research expertise to address one of this century’s defining challenges.”

Working with partners in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, the Georgia Climate Project recently released a Georgia Climate Research Roadmap. Planned upcoming activities include a Georgia Climate Information Portal, a collection of Georgia climate stories, expanded support for student-driven climate solutions, and a Georgia Climate Conference November 7-8, 2019.
