Bridging the science-policy interface

Informing climate governance in the USA

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter reviews some of the recommendations from the report of the panel on informing effective decisions of the USNRC America's climate choices study and sets the report in the context of broader theoretical debates about the role of information in governing climate change and in the science-policy interface. Climate information and communication are a continuing concern for many government agencies, NGOs, businesses and individuals across the USA especially as the evidence for climate change accumulates and examples of responses within the USA and internationally are discussed and evaluated to identify best practices.
