Created: 11/30/2009 -

Abstract

This report, which was commissioned by the Water Utility Climate Alliance (WUCA), concerns how investments in the science of climate change, and in particular climate modeling, can best be directed to help improve the quality of science so that it may be more useful to water utilities and other possible users in adapting to climate change. The main focus of this report is the identification of investments in the science of climate change that, in the opinion of the authors, can best improve the science to support adaptation.
