Narrowing the gap between climate science and adaptation action: The role of boundary chains

A special issue of Climate Risk Management focuses on the role that boundary organizations narrow knowledge gaps to support adaptation, but also build capacity and networks that strengthen societal resilience. For the past five years, the Great Lakes Integrated Sciences + Assessments (GLISA), NOAA’s Great Lakes RISA office, has experimented with the boundary chains concept and approach.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
