AMS Adaptation Meeting

The Center had a strong presence at the American Meteorological Society’s “Practical Solutions for a Warming World: AMS Conference on Climate Adaptation,” held on 18- 20 July 2011, in Asheville, North Carolina. Lisa Dilling helped organize and co-chaired the event, and also presented on “The Role of Information in Climate Change Adaptation on Western Public Lands” and “Building and comparing stakeholder databases and networks across RISAs.” She co-authored a poster (with Bobbie Klein and Meaghan Daly) on the “Interactions Of Drought And Climate Adaptation For Urban Water (IDCA)” project. Other Center presentations included John Berggren (with Lisa Dilling) on “Analyzing

expressed stakeholder needs in the Western Water Assessment RISA;” Christine Kirchhoff (with Lisa Dilling) on “Science Informing Policy? Understanding Drivers and Constraints to Improved Water Management in a Changing Climate;” and CSTPR alum Elizabeth McNie on “Producing usable climate science for climate services: what your research organization needs to know.” Bobbie Klein helped prepare a presentation by Eric Gordon titled “The Colorado Climate Preparedness Project: A Systematic Approach to Assessing State-Level Adaptation.” The meeting agenda and recordings of the presentations can be found here.
