Climate Services Clearinghouse

Climate Services Clearinghouse logoIn response to the steadily increasing production of climate products and services, Center and Western Water Assessment Graduate Research Assistant Genevieve Maricle created a website to compile and coordinate climate services across sectors.

The site, “Climate Services Clearinghouse,” includes products from NOAA, other government agencies, academia, and the private sector.  At present, products and services from these groups are plentiful and valuable, but they lack coordination.  The Clearinghouse seeks to coordinate, and thus enhance, the efficiency of climate service production by enabling providers to identify and fix overlaps and gaps in existing services.  We welcome your feedback! Send an e-mail to genevieve.maricle@colorado.edu.

Western Water Assessment

Western Water Assessment logoThe Western Water Assessment recently completed a strategic planning process.  As part of this process WWA revised its mission statement to provide that “the mission of the WWA is to identify and characterize regional vulnerabilities to climate variability and change, and to develop information, products and processes to assist water-resource decision-makers throughout the Intermountain West.

The planning process also identified research objectives and developed guidelines for research projects and the proposal process, as well as selection criteria for projects.  For more information about the WWA or its strategic planning process visit its website or contact Brad Udall at bradu@cires.colorado.edu.
