Co-Producing Science to Inform Sea-Level Rise Vulnerability and Adaptation for Wetlands
Tuesday, June 4, 2019
June 4 - 2pm ET
In this webinar, Dr. Thorne will present coastal climate adaptation case studies and lessons learned from multiple years working closely with resource managers. Dr. Thorne and her partners use both formal and informal methods to facilitate co-production, communication and outreach on sea-level rise research, and to translate science to inform management actions. This has included convening managers, biologists, Tribes, and other decision-makers and partners at regional workshops for structured scenario and adaptation planning. Through her work, Dr. Thorne has found that building trusting relationships with end-users early in the research process is the most effective way to ensure that science can inform on-the-ground actions. A strong manager-science partnership can benefit all participants by generating important research questions, collecting relevant data and translating research for end-users.
