California-Nevada Applications Program (CNAP) - RISA
The California-Nevada Applications Program (CNAP) is a member of NOAA's Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program. CAP works in conjunction with the California Climate Change Center (CCCC) to develop and provide better climate information and forecasts for decision makers in California and the surrounding region. By working directly with users, CNAP and CCCC are working to evaluate climate information needs and utility from the user perspective.
The CNAP objectives are to evaluate climate forecasts and projections for California and Nevada; improve understanding of mechanisms linking climate and its impacts; develop local models and forecasts of water resources and fire risks; and to disseminate climate information, including forecasts and projections, to California and Nevada decision makers.
