Abstract

This how to guide is intended to help the staff of the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Climate Science Centers and National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center (CSCs and NCCWSC) — as well as the decision makers and resource managers with whom they work— effectively collaborate in developing scientific information that is useful and relevant to those who make decisions about how to conserve biodiversity and cultural resources in a changing climate. It was developed by the Advisory Committee on Climate Change and Natural Resource Science (ACCCNRS or the Committee), an advisory panel to the Secretary of the Interior. The mission of the CSCs and NCCWSC is to help Department of the Interior entities, partners, and stakeholders manage the risks of climate change in a way that conserves biodiversity as well as other natural and cultural resources.
