Converting Research Into Action: A Framework for Identifying Opportunities to Provide Practical Decision Support for Climate Change Adaptation

Categorized Under: Climate



Written by ICF International's J. Randall Freed and Frances Sussman and published in the September 2006 issue of Water Resources Impact, a publication of the American Water Resources Association. Despite the likelihood of significant impacts of climate change and variability, information on future climate conditions is rarely integrated into water resource decision making. This paper provides practical advice on how researchers can best assist water resource managers in adapting to future climate change.
