Climate Resilient Pathways and Social Science Research to Actions
      
 February 7, 2019





Recent international and national scientific assessments of climate change outline a multitude of possible future challenges for society in a warming world, with the magnitude of challenges increasing with each additional unit of warming. This seminar will review the human dimensions of climate change and discuss the roles of social sciences for building a more resilient society.

The seminar builds on insights from a 2017 USGCRP Social Science Coordinating Committee workshop Social Science Perspectives on Climate Change and will discuss: social vulnerability, drivers of and responses to climate change, innovative methods, data and analyses to understand interactions between human and natural systems, and values and challenges with knowledge integration.

The seminar will also include a presentation on highlights of the Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA4) and the IPCC 1.5 °C Special Report as well as panel sessions to explore strengthening interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research in federal programs with a focus on the infrastructure and integration needed for solution-based research.
