Great Lakes Integrated Sciences & Assessments (GLISA): Practitioner Partnerships for Great Lakes Ensemble

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This workgroup is aimed at bringing together climate data/information users in the Great Lakes region to discuss current successes, challenges, and gaps related to the usability of high-quality climate data/information for our region. The session will start with a brief description of the Ensemble works, and then transition into group discussions on the topics of 1) where/how participants currently get climate data/information 2) how participants are currently using climate data/information and 3) the usability of existing products.  These conversations will help identify data/information gaps that the Great Lakes Ensemble can aim to address to better serve practitioners in the region.   

GLISA’s primary goal for the Ensemble is to make it easier to incorporate climate data/information into adaptation activities across the region ranging from climate impact modeling to urban adaption planning. This cannot be achieved without the guidance from those performing those activities. An end goal of this session is to establish a practioner’s advisory committee, which will offer participants the opportunity to work more closely with GLISA and guide the types of products that are developed out of the Ensemble.
