GC51B:
Connecting Stakeholders with Climate Science: The Role of Climate Programs Posters


Session ID#: 9078

Session Description:
Across the globe, there is a multitude of climate programs.  These climate programs vary in organizational structure and leadership but share broadly similar missions focused on advancing climate science and delivering applicable climate information to stakeholders. Using the USA as an example, programs may consist of university investigators (e.g., NOAA Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) teams); public-private partnerships (e.g., Landscape Conservation Cooperatives); government-university partnerships (USDI Climate Science Centers); federal government-led programs (e.g., USDA Regional Climate Hubs); or federal-State government partnerships (e.g., regional climate centers). At a general level, there is overlap between climate programs but their specific mission goals differ and apply to different groups of stakeholders. This session invites presenters to share their program successes and challenges in connecting to stakeholders. Of particular interest are synergies between programs, where successful partnerships at regional, national or international scales have resulted in tangible benefits to stakeholders.
