Climate Change Software Research & Development

Software can't remove global warming gases from the atmosphere, stop the glaciers from melting, or lower sea levels.

But it can help us better prepare, mitigate, adapt, respond, and recover from growing climate change impacts and disasters.

Since 2019 we've been gathering unique insights into the ways software can help prepare individuals and communities deal with climate change impacts and natural disasters.

We've launched a freemium service to share insights, guidance, knowledge, content, tools, data, resources and other accelerators to assist climate change-related software development effort.

Software Methodology

While there are many ways to build software, we believe solutions for climate change impacts are at their best when they are Open; Accelerated; in agreement with the latest Science (as stated by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change); Insightful; and meet SMART goals and objectives.

We call this unique software solution methodology OASIS.

Software Platform & Prototypes

Using this methodology, we are building a software technology prototype to accelerate the creation of climate change solutions and demonstrate how software can address and help overcome common communication and other barriers that prevent individual and communities from preparing for, responding to, and recovering from climate change impacts and disasters.
