Climate change is one of the most challenging issues facing our nation and the world. Even if dramatic successes were to be achieved on the mitigation policy front, adaptation to the impacts of climate change is going to be necessary for the foreseeable future. How can science successfully inform policy in a rapidly changing, uncertain world? What are the factors that lead to communities and resource managers making adaptive decisions in the face of uncertainty? Professor Lisa Dilling explores the role of information in decision making as societies adapt to the changes brought on by climate change.
