The Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts (WICCI)

Apr 30, 2013, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Deadline: 

 

Stakeholder engagement is an essential element of climate adaptation. The Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts (WICCI) has organized as a distributed network of stakeholder groups, bringing together regionally scaled climate projections with the resource managers most concerned about the impacts of climate change. Despite the management challenges of this organizational model, WICCI has had notable success in advancing climate change adaptation in Wisconsin and the upper Midwest. This webinar will provide discussion about:

  • Organizing for stakeholder engagement
  • Challenges in managing the climate adaptation dialog
  • Successes in advancing regional adaptation
Speakers:  
Dan Vimont, Associate Professor of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, and is the Bryson Distinguished Professor of Climate, People, and the Environment
 
David Liebl is a statewide outreach specialist for the University of Wisconsin-Cooperative Extension. He is a member of the Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts (WICCI) Science Council, and co-chairs the WICCI Stormwater Working Group.
