NREL/ESS Fall 2016 Seminar Series


Managing for Climate Change


Hosted by Dennis Ojima, NREL/NC CSC

We wish to explore through our seminar series the various ways different natural resource sectors are dealing with climate change and ways in which the research enterprise can support these sectors. The speakers will provide examples associated with water, conservation, ecosystem, and agriculture issues, and how various communities are responding to climate change. Topics include greenhouse gas emission reduction action plans, adaptation actions, and approaches to increasing resilience to climate change. In addition, examples of research and engagement approaches will be presented to illustrate various ways of linking research and actions in a co-design/co-production structure to facilitate co-generation of knowledge.

Fridays, 11:00 AM - 12 Noon
A302-304, Third Floor, Natural and Environmental Sciences Building
