Summary

The Northwest Climate Conference (formerly called the Pacific Northwest Climate Science Conference) is the premier climate science event for the region, providing a forum for researchers and practitioners to share scientific results and discuss challenges and solutions related to the impacts of climate change on people, natural resources, and infrastructure in the Northwest. Conference participants include policy- and decision-makers, resource managers, and scientists from academia, public agencies, sovereign tribal nations, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector.

Purpose

The Third Annual Pacific Northwest Climate Science Conference was held at the Boise Centre in Boise, Idaho, October 1-2, 2012. The conference aimed to stimulate a place-based (rather than discipline-based) exchange of information about emerging climate, climate impacts, and climate adaptation science in the Pacific Northwest. The conference also included time for presentation of emerging policy and management goals, objectives, and information needs related to climate impacts and adaptation. The agenda for the event featured cross-cutting plenary sessions covering emerging science and policy efforts of broad interest, more focused concurrent sessions, and plenty of time for discussion and networking, including at an evening poster session/reception. Financial contribution by the NW Climate Science Center (NW CSC) helped provide travel scholarships for 17 students from Oregon, Washington, and Idaho to attend the conference. This contribution responds to the Training and Education efforts by the NW CSC, one of the primary objectives outlined in the NW CSC Strategic Plan for 2012-2015.
