Climate in Context is an edited volume describing the development and implementation of the NOAA-RISA
program, an innovative program to research and develop experimental region-based climate services. The
book covers scholarly contributions on use-inspired research in five key areas: understanding the context of
working with stakeholders and decision makers, understanding risk-based climate applications, supporting the development of knowledge networks, innovating regional climate services, and advancing science policy. The book editors are Adam Parris, Gregg Garfin, and an editorial working group of applied climate and science policy experts. CLIMAS is also contributing to a chapter about program evaluation. The book will be published by Wiley & Sons; the expected date of publication is fall 2014.
