The world needs software solutions for Climate Change problems.
Software can't remove global warming gases from the atmosphere, stop the glaciers from melting, or lower sea levels.
But it can help us better prepare, mitigate, adapt, respond, and recover from growing climate change impacts and disasters.
OASIS is about sharing insights, guidance, knowledge, content, tools, data, resources and other accelerators to assist that software development effort.

Trust, Belief, and Willingness to Act
Building climate change-related software solutions with trust in mind.
In 2019 we set out to investigate if there is a need for a solution that gives citizens personalized help preparing for and recovering from climate change impacts and lets trusted authorities assist them and report on their results.
As part of this effort, a great deal of market and technical research has been conducted. Over 140 students have been involved so far, in dozens of academic institutions in Canada and internationally.
Our greatest finding is the willingness of citizens to take responsibility and use climate change impact platform to help themselves, their neighbors and community plan for, mitigate and recover from climate change disasters. We also confirmed that software solutions can be built to help.
We continue to gather unique insights into the ways software can help prepare individuals and communities deal with climate change-related problems, impacts and natural disasters.
While there are many ways to build software, we have come to the conclusion that solutions for climate change are at their best when they are built a certain way.
We call this unique software solution methodology OASIS.
We are building a software technology prototype to accelerate the creation of climate change solutions and demonstrate how software can address and help overcome common communication and other barriers that prevent individual and communities from preparing for, responding to, and recovering from climate change impacts and disasters.
We’ve been researching climate change-related software development since 2019. We’re proud to introduce a flexible new service to share our unique research, insights, expertise and technology with you:
- Want to learn best practices for climate change software development?
- Developing a new climate change-related product or service?
- Looking for on-demand software research, project, and development support?
- Want to showcase your data, product or service at events and customer demos?
Whatever your climate change-related software need is, we can help!
