Climate Science Alliance teams up with Scripps’ Center for Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation!


The Climate Science Alliance (Alliance) is teaming up with the Scripps’ Center for Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation (CCCIA). This new partnership between CCCIA and the Alliance will bring new opportunities to expand delivery and translation of science to partners across the south coast.

“We are excited to have the Climate Science Alliance partnership as part of the new Center and continue to bring the natural resource community together to advance climate resilience across the region,”noted CCCIA Director Mark Merrifield.

The CCCIA is a new center launched by Scripps in 2015 to leverage climate change expertise to develop strategies for climate adaptation based on top-tier science and a thorough understanding of community needs.

“Having the Alliance join forces with the CCCIA will provide opportunities to continue to grow our collaborative partnerships and projects while working closely with climate scientists to build resilience in our region” Ed Pert, Regional Manager California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW).

The CDFW has housed the Alliance since it was created in 2014 and will continue to play a major role in its projects and partnerships.

“I am incredibly proud of the work of the Alliance and its 200+ partners and believe this partnership brings great opportunities that will benefit our collaborative work. I look forward to being affiliated with CCCIA and excited for the opportunities ahead,” stated Director Dr. Amber Pairis.
