On August 14-15, 2018 the National Academy of Sciences hosted a meeting in Washington, D.C. to discuss California’s 4th Climate Change Assessment. This two-day workshop convened stakeholders involved in all aspects of the California assessment.
Dan Cayan of Scripps Institution of Oceanography and contributor to several other climate assessments (including the San Diego County Ecosystems assessment, led by the Climate Science Alliance) presented findings in the “Changing Precipitation Patterns and Implications for Water Management” session.
Laura Engeman of Scripps’ Center for Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation and Advisor to the Climate Science Alliance presented San Diego’s regional findings and dissemination strategies in the “Regional Reports and Engaging Regional Stakeholders and Climate Collaboratives” session.
The Academy meeting featured art from Diane Burko, an Affiliated Artist of the Alliance, in the hallway for attendees to enjoy.
