Global Climate Action Summit
Science to Action Community (S2AC)
We’re beginning to plan the invitation-only ‘infrastructure event’ at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, CA, September 10-11, 2018.
We are co-leading, through the ‘Science to Action Community’, an official side event at the summit on creating climate-smart design and building principles for use by the architecture, engineering, and infrastructure communities
We’re also taking part in the official Science to Action day on Sept 11th. We’ll be presenting the results of the NY State-led climate advisory report, and possibly launching something brand new….stay tuned.
Independent Advisory Committee
We just launched a kick-off website for the Science to Action Community (S2AC) - a group of 85+ organizations that is coordinating to elevate science in the use of policy and decision making. We are supporting the S2AC through staffing, strategy, and technical support.
Stuff we’re reading or paying attention to
We just wrapped up the in-person meeting of the Independent Advisory Committee on Applied Climate Assessment in NY City. We are the Secretariat for the committee, which is commissioned by NY State, in partnership with Columbia UNiversity and the American Meteorological Society.
Where to find us soon
We’re looking forward to the release of the 4th US National Climate Assessment. It won’t be ready for release for a few months yet, but it has cleared all the review hurdles so far, and we understand it’s on track. We helped with Volume I of the report: The Climate Science Special Report, that came out last December.
The American Society of Landscape Architects just released a new report on Climate Change and Resilience. We’re diving into that this week.
