IE Data Summit: Environment, Climate, & Energy


Data is essential to the work we do. From better planning, to better service delivery, to achieving our collective goals for inclusion, sustainability, and equity–we need to build a strong data and research community that can:

  1. Share insights and resources

  2. Support each other in our work

  3. Help produce better decision making on investments and policies

Join us to hear about groundbreaking research in environment, climate, and energy from our region and explore data tools that can be instrumental in strengthening our communities.

This continuing series of events will showcase research findings from across our region and provide data tool demonstrations for novice and expert data users to learn from.
