There is broad scientific consensus that climate change is occurring and is caused by human actions. However, there is a limited implementation of climate adaptation to help create resilient local communities. Local and regional governments have access to a wide range of resources that can help them become more resilient to climate impacts. Even with this information, communities still face significant barriers bridging the gap from planning to action.
The WaterSMART Drought Response Program supports a proactive approach to drought by providing financial assistance to water managers to develop and update comprehensive drought plans (Drought Contingency Planning) and implement projects that will build long-term resilience to drought (Drought Resiliency Projects).

The Transdisciplinary Environmental Science for Society (TESS) initiative at the University of Arizona has developed a set of online professional development short-courses, to equip future generations of researchers, practitioners, political leaders, and educators with the knowledge to actively confront society’s most complex environmental challenges. Many researchers want to apply their research to real-world problems, and decision makers want better access to advances in science. TESS content helps researchers and practitioners to bridge the gap between science and the needs of society.
The Northwest and Southwest Climate Adaptation Science Centers (NW CASC, SW CASC) invite statements of interest for tribal climate adaptation research projects to be initiated in Federal Fiscal Year (FY) 2021. The SW CASC is requesting statements of interest that specifically draw upon the application of traditional methods of ecosystem restoration and natural resource management, with special emphasis on fire in the context of climate change and adaptation.
