Western Region Climate Services Provider Database

Project Dates

Adapting to climate change requires that decision makers have information that is relevant to solve their problems at hand. Unfortunately, potential users of climate information often do not know where to look for relevant information, nor are producers of climate information well connected to potential users, resulting in a gap that separates the supply and demand of climate information. This project first created a comprehensive database of climate service providers in the western US. Now researchers are conducting a survey of climate service providers to better understand what services are in demand, how providers are developing and maintaining their stakeholder networks, and how they evaluate climate services development and stakeholder engagement.
