The scope of machine learning solutions to address climate change goes far beyond the intersection we address here. Tackling climate change requires cooperation between diverse stakeholders, domain scientists, and action in many forms. Whether you are a machine learning researcher looking to apply your skills to combat climate change, or an early career researcher aiming to have a meaningful impact in your career, a practitioner in one of the domain science areas looking to apply ML to your problem, or for any other reason you are interested in the intersection of climate change and ML, we hope these pages can help inform and facilitate your research!

The pages below provide overviews and resources on topics at the intersection of climate change and machine learning. ''Mitigation'' refers to reducing emissions in order to lessen the extent of climate change, while ''adaptation'' refers to preparing for the effects of climate change. We also provide overviews of various ''tools for action'' -- such as policy, economics, education, and finance -- that can help enable mitigation and adaptation strategies.

The aim of this wiki is to help foster impactful research to tackle the climate crisis, by identifying problems where ML can be useful. The scope of solutions to address the climate crisis goes far beyond the intersection we address here; the problems of climate change require cooperation between diverse stakeholders, and action in many forms. But whether you are machine learning researcher looking to apply your skills to combat climate change, a young researcher aiming to have impact in your career, a practitioner in one of these areas looking to apply ML to your problem, or for any other reason are interested in the intersection of climate change and ML, we hope these pages can help inform and facilitate your research!

We welcome your contributions and feedback! See editing guidelines here.

This wiki is maintained and moderated by members of CCAI.

Please see the pages below for an overview of topics at the intersection of climate change and machine learning, accompanied by relevant readings, datasets, conferences, and organizations.

General resources

Topics organized by Application Area

Here pages are organized by the field or area which studies an area to which ML can be applied. Mitigation is preventing or reducing the effects of climate change, while Adaptation is changing (technology, society, or other systems) to deal with the effects of climate change. Social Impacts & Tools for Action refer to fields which study the problems of climate change at a meta-level, describing and quantifying effects and suggesting concrete ways to make change.

Mitigation

Adaptation

Social Impacts & Tools for Action


Topics organized by Cross-cutting Theme

Here pages are organized by some cross-cutting themes or research problems we have identified as having potential impacts for many of the application areas identified above.


Topics organized by Machine Learning Area

Here pages are organized by the area or type of machine learning research. If you are an ML researcher in one of these areas, this provides a quick way to see which problems of climate change potentially best align with your expertise.
