Webinar: Bridging the Gap Between Science and Decision-Making

How can we best connect decision makers with climate science? Dr. Amy Snover, director, UW Climate Impacts Group, discusses this question in a webinar hosted by the Environmental and Energy Study Institute. Snover breaks CIG’s work into three different goals:

Educating key actors about climate risks and response options
Enabling the use of climate science in risk assessment and management
Embedding scientists in management contexts and science in management processes

To illustrate these areas in action, Snover draws on two examples – building a Sea Level Rise Toolkit with the Washington Coastal Resilience Project, and developing the Tribal Vulnerability Assessment Resources alongside tribal nations.

Dr. Snover to Give Virtual Briefing on Linking Science & Action

Director Dr. Amy Snover will give a Livecast briefing for Congressional staff and the broader community on Thursday, April 16, 9–9:45 a.m. PT. In her briefing, “Bridging the Gap Between Science and Decision-Making,” Dr. Snover will discuss the University of Washington Climate Impacts Group and Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center’s programs and methods for advancing climate resilience in the Northwest. The briefing is sponsored by the non-partisan Environmental and Energy Study Institute. Dr. Snover will appear as part of the Institute’s Climate Adaptation Data Week, a briefing series focused on coastal climate adaptation data needs and applications.

Upcoming Webinar: A Spatial Planning Tool for Biodiversity Conservation under Climate Change

CIG’s Andrew Shirk will be giving a Conservation Biology Institute webinar on Thursday, November 14th at 10 AM PT about a new spatial planning tool that he is helping to develop as part of his work with the Cascadia Partner Forum.

The Cascadia Partner Forum (CPF) is a network of natural resource practitioners in Washington and British Columbia. A primary goal of the partnership is to provide a regional-scale organizational framework to conserve Cascadia’s biodiversity, which is under threat from an expanding human footprint and a changing climate. The partner forum has developed a climate adaptation strategy that seeks to foster greater coordination across land manager boundaries and provide a timely and up-to-date regional perspective to inform local land-use decisions.

Input Session: Pacific Northwest Drought Early Warning System Regional Implementation Plan 2020-2022

The National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) and partners in the Pacific Northwest Drought Early Warning System (PNW DEWS) are going through the process of updating the regional implementation plan for the period of 2020-2022. The regional implementation plan sets priorities, outcomes, and activities the PNW DEWS network wants to undertake together to improve drought early warning and preparedness for the region. This virtual input session is being offered for those who were not able to attend the in-person October 2019 meeting where the draft plan was put together. The session will begin with an overview of the draft and an opportunity for discussion and further input to the document.

Webinar Recording: Tribal Vulnerability Assessment Resources for Northwest and Great Basin Tribes

Are you concerned about what climate change might mean for your tribe? The Climate Impacts Group, in partnership with the Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC), hosted a webinar to introduce a new suite of Tribal Vulnerability Assessment Resources designed to support Northwest and Great Basin tribes’ efforts to assess climate risks to natural and cultural resources.

In this webinar, Dr. Meade Krosby, Senior Scientist at the Climate Impacts Group and University Deputy Director of the NW CASC, introduced the web-based resources, including: 

A Tribal Climate Tool, which provides interactive maps, graphs and reports summarizing projected changes in climate for the unique geographies and impacts of concern to Northwest and Great Basin tribes.

Upcoming Webinar: Climate Resilience in Flood Risk Management – Culvert Design

Join CIG’s Guillaume Mauger and the Washington Silver Jackets on Wednesday, September 19th  at 10 AM for a webinar on Climate Resilience in Flood Risk Management: Culvert Replacement. Washington state is currently mandated to replace thousands of culverts that create barriers to fish passage, resulting in a substantial reduction in available habitat. Given the scale of this investment, WA Department of Fish and Wildlife and UW Climate Impacts Group have begun to assess the potential impacts of climate change on culvert design. George Wilhere, a senior research scientist in the habitat program at WDFW, and Guillaume Mauger, a research scientist in climate science at CIG, will review recent research, describe two new online tools, and discuss potential applications.
