Information for Decision-Makers

Little time, limited resources, and always more fires to put out than people to do it? Here is a resource that may be helpful if you are dealing with challenges such as these:

  • What does climate change mean for my community?
  • We need to start thinking about the long-term impacts of climate change - where to begin?
  • How prepared is my community for dealing with climate change impacts such as sea-level rise and related coastal hazards?
  • How can I plan for an uncertain future if today I’m dealing with the very real and certain impacts of a storm that just came through?
  • How do I design a communications and outreach campaign around global warming?
  • What is the best way to involve stakeholders in an assessment or decision-making process?

These are the kinds of practice-oriented questions I explore in my research and in my work with policy-makers, planners, and resource managers.

I conduct much of my research in close consultation with policy- and decision-makers. I also help scientists to work more effectively with practitioners. If you are interested in expert advice, please contact me.
