For this we thank the AAAS and Science Magazine.
A key part of this project is to collect information and to build a community of practitioner groups that at share their experiences and needs in accessing, using , and finding support in integrating climate information in their operations.
We ask you to read the paper and review the table below of example groups, and to consider both sharing this with groups who you know who have lessons to share, and for those who can upload their information and to download the information on what these groups are doing.
We will update the table of groups regularly as more organizations share their data. You can view and download that data below.
We also invite you feedback on other information you would like to have collected and shared in the process.
You can also download the spreadsheet here.
ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
Nicole Klenk’s research examines the role of (environmental) science in society, the science-policy interface, the politics of knowledge co-production, mobilization and application, and new modes of environmental governance. Her research is mostly situated in the interpretive social sciences and her theoretical orientation is interdisciplinary, drawing from science studies, post-structuralist political theory, and pragmatism. Her areas of focus are forestry, biodiversity conservation and climate change adaptation.
Fabian Mendez, physician and PhD in Epidemiology, is full time professor and head of the School of Public Health at the Universidad del Valle in Cali, Colombia. His research interests focus in the complex relationships between environment and health with interdisciplinary approaches. He has developed research in different topics from vector borne diseases to health effects of environmental pollutants, and right now develops a project to evaluate health vulnerability to climate change with a watershed approach in an area of Colombia.
Katie Meehan is assistant professor of Geography and co-director of the Science, Environment, and Society Lab at the University of Oregon. Her research and teaching interests focus on water governance, urbanization, the science-policy interface, and climate change adaptation. Recent work, supported by a Fulbright NEXUS grant, examines the spatial governance challenges associated with institutionalizing local knowledge and non-networked water supply technologies in Mexico City
Sandra Lee Pinel is a certified community and regional planner (AICP) and SFAA member since 1988. PhD in Urban and Regional Planning with minors in Anthropology and Latin American Studies.
