Kathy Jacobs, CCASS Director and Professor in Environmental Science, moderates this National Academies webinar on the role of the social and behavioral sciences in understanding and addressing climate change. This third webinar in the series, focused on climate adaptation and resilience, considers some of the previous work the Board on Environmental Change and Society (BECS) has engaged in concerning natural and human systems, including the Global Change Research Needs and Opportunities report. Panelists explore the importance of adaptation and consider questions such as, how should the United States be thinking about and planning for adaptation? What actions are decision makers currently taking to adapt, and what further actions are needed to respond effectively to climate change impacts?
