Our History

Since its inception, the Climate Science Alliance has been working closely with partners across Northwestern Mexico to better understand climate impacts and solutions for the region. In 2015, the Climate Science Alliance in partnership with Aide Escalante launched Climate Kids Mexico as our main outreach program which continues to train and support hundreds of youth to be Climate Kids Ambassadors. In 2019, the Climate Science Alliance convened 40 researchers and partners to discuss a more intentional and strategic effort to advance collaboration for conservation work on both sides of the border.

From this meeting sparked the beginnings of a more formalized effort, known as the Baja Working Group. This workgroup convenes scientists, resource managers, conservation groups, educators, philanthropists, and other stakeholders from both sides of the border, to advance collaborative efforts to build resilience in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and human communities.

In 2020, a six-month Climate Resilience Fellowship was created as a collaborative experience designed to launch the Baja Working Group and advance complementary work between the Climate Science Alliance and the International Community Foundation.
