University of Washington Climate Impacts Group
The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC) is hosted by the University of Washington Climate Impacts Group, the lead applied climate science enterprise in the Northwest. The Climate Impacts Group works with decision makers to develop the fundamental scientific understanding, data, tools, guidance and capacity needed to manage climate risks. The Climate Impacts Group delivers insights about regional science needs to NW CASC leadership, and supports the NW CASC by providing experience in co-producing actionable knowledge about climate impacts and increasing capacity for applying climate science. In turn, the NW CASC provides the Climate Impacts Group with information about NW CASC activities, products and funding opportunities for distribution to their scientific partners and stakeholders.
Washington State University Center for Environmental Research, Education, and Outreach
Washington State University is home to the Center for Environmental Research, Education, and Outreach (CEREO), a progressive network of faculty, staff, students and industry working to resolve environmental issues through collaborative partnerships. CEREO supports transdisciplinary research projects that use two-way stakeholder engagement to produce actionable science for climate adaptation. As part of the NW CASC consortium, Washington State University connects the NW CASC with opportunities for collaborating with a network of organizations, scientists and conservation practitioners working together to advance regional climate resilience.
