The Long-Term Vision: Developing a “Sustained Climate Assessment”
Attend the webinar April 24, 2013 1:15 to 2:45 PM EDT
In the third session of the National Climate Assessment series, we will look at how the assessment could be transitioned from a periodic review of climate change to an ”ongoing process of working to understand and evaluate the nation’s vulnerabilities to climate variability and change and its capacity to respond.”
Jim Buizer, Director of the Climate Adaptation and International Development Institute for the Environment, University of Arizona, is a National Climate Assessment and Development Advisory Committee (NCADAC) member and Lead Author of Chapter 30, the Sustained Assessment. He will take us through the long term vision for future US climate assessments.
In February, SSF hosted the NCA Director and advisory committee members discussing the findings of the NCA, and in March, we hosted a panel of Lead Convening Authors of chapters on regional assessments, energy, and adaptation for a conversationa about the implications of the NCA. If you missed them, the recorded sessions are available with a free membership.
