Learn about Speaker: Zachary Paganini,
The project responds to inquiries from U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP)stakeholders and funders for an explanation of the origins of, functions of, and reasons for differences in the regional boundaries of different federal climate research networks. This research explores six federal climate research networks through mapping analysis, document and literature review, and interviews with program managers and directors at federal climate research networks to explain why these differences exist and what functions they serve. The research revealed that while federal climate research networks share a common goal of delivering accurate and actionable climate data to stakeholders across multiple scales, differences in where networks draw their capacity from and what specific sectors networks focus on delivering information to not only explain but necessitate differences in federal climate research networks’ regional boundaries.
