The Southwest Climate Science Center’s Deputy Director, Carolyn Enquist, will be presenting a poster at NOAA’s Resilience Ecosystem Workshop on January 17-18. Her presentation is titled “The Southwest Climate Science Center: toward actionable, decision-relevant science for climate adaptation.”
“I hope my contribution coveys the SW CSC’s and the broader network’s commitment to supporting truly actionable, decision-relevant science,” Enquist said.
She explained that the “Resilience Ecosystem” refers to a group of organizations and individuals whose goal is educating the public and other stakeholders about the effects of climate change. The website describes the group as “an open and inclusive community of climate adaptation professionals who collaboratively identify and pursue open-source and proprietary collaboration for the benefit of all.”
Enquist said she is “Looking forward to engaging with a great group of folks from around the country who really know how to think outside the box.”
According to the meeting’s website, the purpose of the two-day meeting is “to forge an organizing framework for an open and inclusive "ecosystem" of public and private entities that are working to sustain and evolve science-based tools, information and expertise that can help communities, resource managers, and businesses build resilience to climate-related impacts and extreme events.”
The workshop will take place at the NOAA Science Center, 1301 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, Maryland from January 17 to 18. Approximately 30 people are expected to attend. For further information, please visit the link below.
