Climate Change Solutions I


Session ID#: 10285

Session Description:
The climate science community must devote much greater attention to solutions to climate change. This session seeks abstracts from researchers, planners and managers who are evaluating local, regional, national and global solutions strategies, programs, plans and technology.  The science is well defined. We know what climate change is doing to the world. We must come together to better address a range of solutions to the climate change dilemma.
