*More about the conference.* The NW Climate Conference annually brings
together more than 300 researchers and practitioners from around the region
to discuss scientific findings, challenges, and solutions related to the
impacts of climate on people, natural resources, and infrastructure in the
northwestern United States and southwestern Canada. The conference aims to
stimulate a place-based and cross-disciplinary exchange of information
about emerging climate, climate impacts, and climate adaptation science and
practice in the Northwest. The conference also provides a forum for the
presentation of emerging policy and management goals, objectives, and
information needs related to regional climate impacts and adaptation.
Conference participants include policy- and decision-makers, resource
managers, and scientists from academia, public agencies, sovereign tribal
nations, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector. More
