Todayís decision-makers are faced with overwhelming access to information on complex environmental issues including water availability in a changing climate. In response to these increasing demands, federal and private entities are building programs to address these challenges and deliver tools for application to the decisions. Building off the lessons from the nationís Weather Enterprise, the water and climate enterprise will examine the roles of federal partners, academia, and private industry, and the needs of the decision-maker. These sessions will address the service delivery component of the enterprise, and will focus on the roles at each step in the information value chain.
