Carolinas Collaborative on Climate, Health, and Equity (C3HE)

C3HE, a NOAA CAP/RISA team, builds upon years of regional work on climate science, tools and assessments to move into a new phase that centers Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) principles at the forefront of NOAA-funded climate research and to deliver climate futures to more communities than have been previously served. The team advances their goals by demonstrating our commitment to address the climate reality in a just and equitable way, while ensuring the inclusivity and diversity of all voices are represented in every aspect of our work in the Carolinas.

Northwest Climate Resilience Collaborative (NCRC)

NCRC, a NOAA CAP/RISA team, assists communities on the frontlines of climate change in pursuing their own resilience objectives, while ensuring that local-scale and place-based innovations are scaled out and up to support broader resilience in the Northwest, across the CAP/RISA network, and in state and federal climate resilience efforts.

NOAA RISA Program (National Office)

NOAA’s Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program supports research teams that help expand and build the nation's capacity to prepare for and adapt to climate variability and change. Central to the RISA approach are commitments to process, partnership, and trust building. RISA teams work with public and private user communities to:

California-Nevada Climate Applications Program (CNAP)

CNAP - a NOAA CAP/RISA team - is a climate research program led by scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego and Desert Research Institute in Reno, Nevada. The group has spent more than 15 years understanding climate risks in order to improve the ability of decisionmakers in California and Nevada to prepare and plan for hazards and extreme events. 

Mid-Atlantic Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (MARISA)

The MARISA program, a NOAA CAP/RISA Team, supports integrated, flexible processes for building adaptive capacity to climate variability and change in diverse settings in the Mid-Atlantic region. The program's initial focus is on the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Building on decades of research in this region, MARISA emphasizes use-inspired research that integrates social and physical science methods to generate, analyze, and translate climate information at multiple spatial and temporal scales for diverse stakeholders.

Pacific Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (Pacific RISA)

The Pacific RISA program, a NOAA CAP/RISA Team, supports Pacific island and coastal communities in adapting to the impacts of climate variability and change. We strive to enhance Pacific communities’ abilities to understand, plan for, and respond to changing climate conditions. Our work is conducted through interdisciplinary research and partnerships with local, national, and regional stakeholders.

Southern Climate Impacts Planning Program (SCIPP)

The mission of SCIPP, a NOAA CAP/RISA Team, is to increase the awareness of and preparedness for southern U.S. climate hazards for both present day and future climate conditions through improved local hazard mitigation planning; actively engage stakeholder groups to promote increased two-way knowledge transfer between climate scientists and decision makers; provide local, state, and regional decision makers with climate hazard data that is comprehensive, accurate, and easily accessible; and identify new, critical areas of applied climate research for the southern U.S.

Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP)

ACCAP, a NOAA CAP/RISA Team, partners with stakeholders to inform realistic community plans and climate adaptation strategies using the most scientifically accurate, reliable, and up-to-date information. Stakeholder interaction and outreach is integrated into every aspect of ACCAP’s work, including climate modeling and addressing regional vulnerabilities. These interactions include needs assessment, vulnerability assessment, as well as user collaboration in downscaling models, designing research studies, and developing, testing, and evaluating research information products and tools.
