Organization Overview: 

The North Central Climate Science Center (NC CSC) is part of a federal network of eight Climate Science Centers created to provide scientific information, tools, and techniques that managers and other parties interested in land, water, wildlife and cultural resources can use to anticipate, monitor, and adapt to climate change.

Adaptation work: 

Connecting to decision makers is integral to the mission of the North Central Climate Science Center. This connection is not always obvious or automatic; it requires not only a strong research program but also a healthy infrastructure for transition, a strong interface with the user community, and continuous evaluation of the process. This research area will ensure that the NC CSC has these key components in place.

Abstract

The field of climate change adaptation is in a period of critical transition. The general concepts of adaptation have been well developed over the past decade. Now, practitioners must move from generalities to concrete actions, including implementation, monitoring, and evaluation.

Project Summary

Climate change is a global phenomenon that has the potential for severe local impacts to natural systems in Fresno County. These impacts in turn will affect agriculture, human health, infrastructure, forestry, emergency response, tourism, and many other facets of society. Climate change impacts are expected to exacerbate existing problems in Fresno County while also imposing new ones.
