Project

Stakeholder Engagement to Coordinate a Regional Assessment of Climate

Project Summary

Affiliation(s): Northwest CSC

Principal Investigator(s):
  • Phil Mote (Oregon State University)

This project supported a climate assessment workshop for the Northwest region. The workshop brought together regional stakeholders interested in understanding regional climate impacts and identifying strategies for adapting resources to changing conditions. The workshop also initiated a process of participatory activities and communication about the climate assessment, which helped contribute to the broader National Climate Assessment (NCA). By discussing adaptive management solutions with regional stakeholders, the workshop provided regional case study results to the NCA, such as information on local lessons and best practices. Specific workshop objectives included (1) convening and launching a process for coordinating the regional climate assessment and (2) developing a regional climate synthesis assessment for delivery to the NCA.
