California Climate Change Center (CCCC)
In 2003, the California Energy Commission’s Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) Program established the California Climate Change Center (CCCC) to document climate change research relevant to the state. The Center was the first state-funded climate change research program in the nation. Its goal is to enhance national and international studies, generating new information that can be used to shape California’s climate change policy. This center is a virtual organization with core research activities at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the University of California, Berkeley, complemented by efforts at other research institutions.
The CCCC is conducting research in the energy, water resources, public health, coastal resources, forests, ecosystems, and agriculture sectors - identifying potential climate impacts and effective adaptation strategies for each sector in California. All of these studies are conducted in very close cooperation and coordination with the relevant federal, state, and local agencies. The California Climate Change Center Report Series details the Center's ongoing research, and can be accessed on their website. For more information, a number of the CCCC reports are represented in this Clearinghouse.
