SCIPP RISA: Incorporating the WAS*IS Vision in Climate Services
SCIPP uses a variety of formal and informal social science methods to engage user communities and conduct research including but not limited to in-person forums, workshops, interviews and focus groups, and online briefings and surveys. Some of the user groups in which SCIPP engages include emergency managers, water resources officials, farmers and ranchers, and tribal environmental professionals on planning for and managing climate hazards such as drought, flooding, storm surge, tornadoes, and winter storms. This poster provides a summary of the ways in which SCIPP incorporates the WAS*IS vision in climate services and stakeholder-driven research.
