This year’s theme, Mobilizing for Impact, addresses the world’s most complex challenges by building cooperative solutions, driven by resources, partner organizations, and individuals who work together to enable transformative and sustainable change.

Established in 2005 by President Bill Clinton, the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), an initiative of the Clinton Foundation, convenes global leaders to create and implement innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.

In the session “Mobilizing Investment in Resilient Cities,” President Clinton joined leaders from across numerous organizations to discuss how cities and the private sector can work together to promote climate adaptation in urban environments.

Public-private partnerships, which bring together government and industries, are key to advancing investment in green infrastructure and urban resilience. These steps will help us as a nation as we prepare for major and distructive weather events like Hurricane Sandy.

Earth Networks – WeatherBug’s parent company – is no stranger to public-private partnerships.

Last fall, during the CGI Annual Meeting, the company made a Commitment to Action to deploy $1.5 million in state-of-the-art weather alerting infrastructure, including hardware and weather tracking technology, in Haiti – an island nation vulnerable to the impacts of weather and climate-related events.

What commitments are you making of your own to prepare your home, family and your community for severe weather?
