Abstract

A Junior Faculty Forum sponsored by NCAR, held on July 2010 included presentations and discussions focused on adaptation of human societies and water systems to climate change. The forum found that adaptation to climate change will require innovative, flexible institutional and organizational structures to meet the challenges presented by complex patterns of change. Water-climate-society adaptation research requires an interdisciplinary, problem-oriented focus by the very nature of the questions involved. Based on forum participants' experiences, four general suggestions are compiled for tackling the applied and interdisciplinary realm of water-climate-society research challenges. These include creating metamethodologies and frameworks, increasing education and training across disciplines on applied water-climate-society problems, working with boundary organizations, and finding champions for institutional reform.
