The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) convened this workshop to facilitate the use of integrated modeling to inform and improve local, regional and national policy decisions relevant to climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies. The workshop purpose was to:

  • Bring together empirical scientists, modelers, economists, social scientists, and public policy experts to help ensure that model development aligns with climate change policy design, management and decision-making needs.
  • Connect the climate change data producers with the climate change data users.  Make existing resources accessible to stakeholders in the field.
  • Highlight successful case studies of intra-agency, inter-agency, academy, public, and private sector systems analysis and integrated modeling for climate change impacts.
