The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine invites you to join a two-day workshop in Washington, DC or via webcast on August 14-15, 2018. The workshop will explore the process, findings, and implementation strategies identified in California's Fourth Assessment, and will also consider climate change assessment activities from other states, regions, and cities. Participants will discuss key elements for successful climate assessment activities, challenges facing policy makers and local actors interpreting and implementing identified interventions, and engagement strategies for key stakeholders such as power and water utilities. 

Climate change assessment, mitigation, and adaption activists are increasingly driven by states, counties, cities, and local stakeholders. For example, California's Fourth Climate Change Assessment (Fourth Assessment) seeks to inform state and local decision makers of the risks associated with the changing climate through nearly 50 complementary but independent research projects spanning diverse topics, ranging from wildfires and habitat loss to electricity and natural gas system resilience.
