RDA Announces Climate Data Challenge

Good afternoon RDA/US members. I'm sure you've already seen the recent communications requesting you to join RDA's 6th Plenary Climate Data Challenge, but I wanted to reiterate to you some highlights related to participation.

Objective of the Climate Data Challenge
RDA intends to use this challenge to demonstrate how important our ongoing work in is in solving numerous climate change issues. Specifically, through this activity, RDA is calling on its members to submit datasets that could be used in alleviating the negative impact of climate change in areas related to air quality, energy and urban activity and connecting them with individuals and organizations so they can be applied in business practices, projects, applications, etc.

Timing of the Climate Data Challenge
With the UN Climate Change Conference scheduled for December 2015 in Paris, France, RDA thought it would be impactful to focus on climate change at our own 6th Plenary, which will be held September 23-25, 2015, also in Paris.

Applicant Eligibility
Any member of RDA involved in the development of a dataset that can be used in addressing climate-related issues in the areas of air quality, energy and urban activity is welcome to participate in the challenge. From a US perspective, we highly encourage our US membership to participate in this event, as it will provide an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of your work and the commitment of RDA/US to this cause.

To submit your application for the Climate Data Challenge, the following is required:

  *   Description of dataset
