Cross-Cutting Themes


The themes below cannot be linked to any one area but rather are integrated throughout CCASS' other seven main theme areas.


Engagement and Collaborative Processes

UA faculty and staff are widely recognized for their exceptional skills in providing science support and information that can be used to improve resilience and economic opportunities, especially working in a “co-production” mode with decision-makers, stakeholders, and private-sector interests so that scientists are partners in the learning process.


Risk Management and Preparing for Extremes

UA experts are helping communities and organizations to assess risks associated with climate change and variability, prepare for disasters, and make planning decisions, while promoting solutions that increase resilience.
