Subject: AGU session on including climate science in decision making

May be of interest to people in the PCC…


Does your research aim to generate information relevant to decision making? Do you use information produced by climate scientists? Have you been part of a partnership or project that has developed science that is useful for decision making?

If so, please consider submitting an abstract to the following session at the AGU Fall Meeting, December 12-16, 2016. This continues the conversation from a similarly named session last year. Preference for oral presentations will be given to those that clearly demonstrate scientist-stakeholder interactions.

Special note: This is a public affairs session which means you can submit to this session AND another session.

Towards more effective decision maker-scientist engagement

Session ID: 13419

Climate extremes, variability, and change, and their consequences for hydrological, ecological, and human systems require that decisions be made now to avoid future system failures. Scientists often see their responsibility as understanding what future changes will be, and then see decision makers as responsible for using this information to take action. Unfortunately, rarely is it that simple. Too often there is a disconnect between the information generated by scientists and decisions being made. This session will explore how these gaps can be overcome. What are attributes of bridges between climate science and applications, and how are these bridges built? We seek presentations and posters based on concrete experiences that reveal the nature of actionable science and demonstrate ways knowledge can be co-produced to address climate change. We especially welcome specific examples of processes or products that demonstrate better practices, or practices to avoid, when including climate science in decision making.


Submission deadline is August 3, 2016 11:59 pm EDT.
