Institute for Resilient Infrastructure Systems

The Institute for Resilient Infrastructure Systems (IRIS) helps communities, businesses, and governments mitigate risks - and seize opportunities - associated with environmental change, extreme weather, and climate-related events by rethinking, transforming and adapting infrastructure systems to strengthen social, economic and ecological resilience. IRIS achieves this through collaborative partnerships, integrative research, decision support, education, training, and outreach.
