The webinar series will serve as a platform for highlighting new thinking and practices at the nexus of climate services and development, including the use of social, behavioral, and economic sciences to shape climate services and adaptation solutions. The series will kick off this fall with four talks by expert scholars, including individuals funded by one of the AdSci program’s three legacy programs, the International Research and Applications Project (IRAP). This effort advances NOAA’s interagency partnerships focused on climate services, adaptation and resilience, and showcases the important role of social science in this space. NOAA is a key agency in the President’s Emergency Plan for Adaptation and Resilience (PREPARE), with technical collaboration and support focused on the development of climate services and early warning systems, adaptation research and implementation, coastal blue carbon and island resilience, among other topics. International collaboration provides critical opportunities for learning and sharing information, data and best practices that can inform and shape our domestic efforts in these areas, as well as contribute to a more climate-ready world. Additional speakers for early 2024 will be announced over the coming weeks.
