Summary

The National Climate Assessment (NCA) and associated assessment activities are giving increased attention to evaluating risks of climate change (including both likelihoods and anticipated consequences of climate-related events), rather than mainly cataloguing recent and projected future impacts.

At this free workshop, experts in climate change and risk analysis techniques as well as participants in past and current NCA activities will discuss better ways to inform decisions by the variety of decision makers in various regions and sectors of the country. Such decisions include the nature of the risks, interactions of climate trends with other trends in American economy and society, potential impacts on the Nation’s key human and natural systems, and implications of their choices for reducing risks.

The workshop will be held at the NAS building at 2101 Constitution Ave, NW, Washington, DC.
