Understanding and Communicating Climate Change in the Southwest

Project Dates

The Southwest is one of the most sensitive regions of the U.S. to climate change and variability. It is essential to understand the full scope of climate variability and change in the Southwest and how to communicate in ways that enable effective decision mak­ing. The goals of this project are to (1) lead efforts to communicate about climate variability and change to decision and policy makers in, and relevant to, the Southwest, and (2) make climate knowledge useful for stakeholder understanding and decision making.
