Research Project: Advancing Climate Change Resilience in the Southwest United States

Location: Range Management Research

Project Number: 3050-12610-001-012-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 1, 2021
End Date: Dec 31, 2023

Objective:
Enhance climate-informed activities in the Southwest United States via three functional areas: convening scientists and stakeholders, research and science synthesis, and tool development and technology transfer.

Approach:
The Cooperator will assist with expanding climate resilience in the Southwest by building relationships with key partners and conducting activities in one or more of the three climate hub functional areas: 1) convening scientists and stakeholders (i.e., adaptation workshops, field days, listening sessions, etc.), 2) research and science synthesis (i.e. investigate and synthesize information on the physical and social impacts of climate change), and 3) tool development and technology transfer (i.e. build collections of decision support tools, augment existing decision support tools, develop new tools).
