Updated Communications Materials on Interagency Network Collaboration Between NOAA RISA, USDA Climate Hubs, and DOI CASCs

On a regional scale, decision makers and communities’ demand for actionable scientific information on adaptation and resilience is outpacing supply. Three federal climate science-to-action networks collaborate closely to ensure relevant scientific information and adaptive management strategies are available to address stakeholder-identified needs. These networks are the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Climate Hubs, the U.S. Department of the Interior’s (DOI) Climate Adaptation Science Centers (CASCs), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessment Program (RISA). These networks have a shared goal of building national resilience to climate change by offering long-term and engaged support with localized scientific expertise and tailored solutions. All three networks rely on partnerships within their regions, which include scientists, practitioners, and local decision makers, to identify regional vulnerabilities, scientific needs and data, and methods for mitigating impacts and adapting to changing conditions.

Individuals from CPO’s RISA Program and the CEE Division worked with representatives from the USDA Climate Hubs and the DOI CASCs to update communications materials describing this interagency network collaboration. The updated materials will be used to explain the purpose and value of this collaboration, and to provide examples of the ways in which these networks coordinate. The updated communications materials can be used to explain the purpose and value of this interagency partnership to enhance regional adaptation and resilience, and to provide examples of the ways in which RISA, the Climate Hubs, and the CASCs coordinate.
