The Center for Climate Change Solutions operates at the intersection of science and policy by employing and serving researchers and decision-makers in the development and communication of effective solutions to the challenges of climate change.
In order to facilitate a sustained, active commerce of knowledge, needs, and solutions between societal endeavors:
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.
