With Sonoma Ecology Center as the lead, this initiate is assisting water sector decision-makers, policy writers and planners –in both city and county government and natural resource organizations — to better use locally relevant climate change science in everyday planning and decision-making. This effort will result in improved understanding throughout the North Bay about climate change information and data available to help with forward-looking planning.
