The CASC network supports training opportunities that enable scientists and managers to convene to better understand the impacts of a changing climate on fish and wildlife resources.

Identifying Region Specific Drought Metrics: What Does Drought Look Like in Southeast Alaska?

In spring 2019, the Alaska CASC assisted the USDA Northwest Climate Hub in hosting the Southeast Alaska Drought Workshop to redefine the national definitions of drought and help participants gather information about drought impacts that are regionally specific to Southeast Alaska. Metrics that work for drier, agricultural regions make little sense in Southeast Alaska’s cool, wet temperate rainforest ecosystem. Learn more >>

Climate Change Adaptation for Wildlife Managers: A Hands-on Workbook Process

The Northeast CASC, USDA Northern Forests Climate Hub, and partners organized a "Climate Change Adaptation for Wildlife Managers" workshop in Cleveland, OH. The workshop was part of an effort led by the Northeast CASC to develop a wildlife adaptation menu for resource managers. Learn more >>

Practitioners Gather to Build Integrated Climate Adaptation Network in the Southwest

The Southwest CASC and the University of Arizona Center for Climate Adaptation Science and Solutions hosted the inaugural Southwest Adaptation Forum (SWAF) in the fall of 2018. The groups see the success of the forum as the first step toward building partnerships across the southwest region’s community of adaptation practitioners. The workshop brought together over 100 climate adaptation and assessment practitioners to share and exchange information on best practices, while laying the groundwork for building a network dedicated to integrated, community-based climate adaptation.

The USGS Community for Data Integration North Central CASC Creates “Climate Scenarios Toolbox”

With awarded support from the USGS Community for Data Integration, researchers at the North Central CASC are working to develop and implement a robust “Climate Scenarios Toolbox” to help on-the-ground management partners access and interpret relevant climate data, assess resource vulnerabilities to climate variability and change, and design adaptation strategies. Managers and scientists can then use these scenarios to evaluate the range of potential impacts of climate change and identify appropriate adaptation strategies. Learn more >>

Skills-Building Webinars Aim to Improve Understanding of Actionable Science Approaches

The Northwest CASC hosted two series of skills-building webinars, developed to promote effective engagement between research and management communities. The spring webinar series on Co-Production in Practice: Examples from the NW CASC provided practices and lessons learned for those wanting to take a co-production approach to generating actionable science to inform decision-making in a changing climate. The fall webinar series on Amplifying Actionable Science through Intentional, Integrated and Creative Communications explores how effective and ongoing communication is vital to the success of a highly collaborative research approach, from a project’s inception through dissemination of results.

Planning for the Future: Best Practices for Using Climate Projections in Adaptation Planning

Researchers from the South Central CASC held a training session at the April 2019 National Adaptation Forum in Madison Wisconsin. During this training session, the team led decision makers through an interactive management challenge that provided them with a better understanding of how to interpret climate projections for future management decisions.
