This recently released report summarizes a multi-agency regional forum on wildfire and a project to learn lessons from unprecedented wildfires in the region during 2016 and 2018.
Researchers from the California-Nevada Applications Program (CNAP), a NOAA RISA team, led the San Diego Regional Climate Assessment. The American Planning Association recently incorporated their results into a new report.
Pacific RISA fostered an inspiring conversation between His Excellency and representatives from Hawai’i state and local government, international consulates, NGOs, and academia.
Risa grantees recently published an opinion paper in Climate and Development. The article describes how rural, minority, and impoverished coastal communities who rely heavily on ecosystem services for protection, disproportionately face the burden of sea level rise.
The conference supports on-the-ground resilience efforts, contributes to the development of a climate information network for the Carolinas, and provides a venue for practitioners, resource managers, and researchers to share and collaborate.
