Science to Action:  Effective Co-Production - Will Science meet the high demands of Practitioners and Decision Makers?

Submit an Abstract to this Session

Session ID#: 26678

Session Description:
This session will explore how the needs and expectations of practitioners are being addressed in climate science and assessment. Practitioners continuously seek the best and most useful science to inform their decisions.  Common requests range from higher resolution and more accurate projections, to recommendations on what models and translational tools are ‘best’ for a given geographical location and decision context, to “What is the maximum event that I need to plan for?”  Presented here are examples of how climate and regional models are integrating decision-maker needs and priorities into scientific development, evaluation, and assessment processes.
