To provide professional communication and outreach services that support the exchange of information among regional stakeholders, and effectively raise awareness of climate issues in the Pacific Northwest.
The Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC) adopted a Communication Strategy for 2012-2016 in March 2013. Our Communication Services are designed to 1) inform climate scientists of the science needs of cultural and natural resource managers, 2) transfer research findings and tools developed by scientists to resource managers and others, and 3) increase the general knowledge and understanding of climate science among resource managers, researchers, policy and decision makers, and the general public.
