In order to facilitate a sustained, active commerce of knowledge, needs, and solutions between societal endeavors:
The Center for Climate Change Solutions (CCCS) in UCLA's Institute of the Environment and Sustainability (IoES) is a world-class science and outreach center focused on finding solutions to the challenges we face from climate change. Through strategic growth in programs and activities, effective fundraising, and careful planning, the Center intends to become a leading site in interdisciplinary and solutions-based research that actively bridges the gap between science and society. The mission of the Center is two-fold:
It is challenging for scientists to predict the full impact of climate change. The natural world is already responding to a changed climate and it is clear that new adaptive measures are required. As scientists examine how climate change will impact the sustainability of biodiversity, public health, economic development, and the ecosystem services on which humans depend, the need for a rapid and meaningful translation of science into effective policy has become urgent.
