NOAA-funded researchers on fostering knowledge networks for climate change adaption

David Bidwell of the Great Lakes Integrated Sciences and Assessments Center, along with his colleagues Don Scavia (Graham Sustainability Institute) and Tom Dietz (Michigan State University), recently co-authored an article for Nature Climate Change on the importance of fostering knowledge networks for climate adaptation.

The authors stress the importance of forging network connections among rapidly changing communities of decision-makers and researchers to foster the social learning necessary for effective adaptation to climate risks. The authors discuss how the Great Lakes Integrated Sciences and Assessments Center, one of eleven Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments centers funded by NOAA’s Climate Program Office, are experimenting with this model.

The full article is available online. For more information, contact David Bidwell (
