Title: From oceans to cities: Creating and understanding demand for
climate information to enable adaptation

Abstract: This session will focus on ways to create - and understand -
demand for climate information. How do we generate interest in climate
information, and tailor it to get traction? How does this differ depending
on the audience? We'll also talk about how to work across silos, by
fostering collaboration between climate scientists and other scientists, and
between information providers and information users. Examples include
working with health care professionals in Washington State to address heat
waves and harmful algal blooms that could affect human health; on a
vulnerability assessment in the Aleutian and Bering Sea islands that focuses
on marine ecosystems and resource-dependent communities and share an example
of a decision support tool that has helped urban planners in Vietnam to
understand and act on climate information to reduce risks to infrastructure
and people.
