This research-in-progress paper presents a design science research (DSR) project that develops design principles for an intelligence system targeted to enhance organizational readiness of climate risk response. We identified a set of theory-inspired design principles through a single cycle of prototyping, demonstration, and evaluation. Through our DSR project, we develop design knowledge that can support organisations to design intelligence IS that support risk mitigation in the face of climate change challenges. Our preliminary findings highlight the significance of incorporating IS into organizations’ climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies, ultimately paving the way for more effective and informed decision-making in a rapidly changing environment.
