CLIMAS Project and Program Evaluation

CLIMAS Lead:  

CLIMAS, like RISA program, has a primary goal of providing relevant climate-related research to support decision making in our region. A fundamental, though frequently overlooked, element of this type of socially engaged research is evaluation of the program and its constituent projects to understand whether we effectively connect climate science with decision makers; learn about what integrative activities work and why; demonstrate successes to funding agencies, stakeholders, and the public; and improve the overall program. The four elements included in the evaluation are Outreach; Graduate and Undergraduate Training; Advancing Science Knowledge; and Use-Inspired Science and Decision Support.
