Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center

The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center is one of eight regional Climate Adaptation Science Centers (CASCs) under the Department of the Interior (DOI) managed by the U. S. Geological Survey's (USGS) National Climate Adaptation Science Center. CASCs were established under Secretarial Order No. 3289, which called for an expansion of the scope and geographic reach of the DOI's climate-science efforts. CASCs provide scientific information, tools and techniques that land, water, wildlife and cultural resource managers and other interested parties can apply to anticipate, monitor and adapt to climate and ecologically-driven responses at regional-to-local scales.

Northwest Fisheries Science Center- NOAA Fisheries Service

NOAA's Northwest Fisheries Science Center studies living marine resources (e. g. , salmon, groundfish, and killer whales) and their habitats in the Northeast Pacific Ocean-primarily off the coasts of Washington and Oregon and in freshwater rivers and streams in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. The Center seeks to better understand living marine resources and their ecosystems to assist resource managers in making sound decisions that build sustainable fisheries, recover endangered and threatened species, and sustain healthy ecosystems, and reduce human health risks.

Northeast Regional Climate Center

The Northeast Regional Climate Center (NRCC) is one of six regional climate centers in the U. S. managed by NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). Established in 1983, the NRCC is located in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Cornell University. It serves the 12-state region that includes: Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and West Virginia. The mission of the NRCC is to facilitate and enhance the collection, dissemination and use of climate data and information, as well as to monitor and assess climatic conditions and impacts in the twelve-state, northeastern region of the U.

Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science (NIACS)

The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science (NIACS) is a collaboration between the U. S. Forest Service, universities, and forest managers to provide ecological, economic, and social information that can be used to facilitate the development and implementation of forest carbon management. Additionally, they provide climate science research to meet information needs of land owners and managers, policymakers, and the public and to help determine how the forests' ecosystem services will be effected by climate change.

RainReady

RainReady, an initiative of the Chicago-based nonprofit Center for Neighborhood Technology, helps communities manage urban flooding in a time of climate change. Urban flooding occurs when rain overwhelms urban drainage systems, causing flooding in buildings and streets. Urban flooding occurs outside of the mapped floodplain, and is distinct from coastal and riverine flooding.  RainReady offers flood mitigation and adaptation solutions for individual properties and communities, through community plans, resident education, site assessments, implementation assistance, and linkages to available financing.

Oakland Climate Action Coalition

The Oakland Climate Action Coalition (OCAC) is a collaboration of more than 30 organizations striving to ensure that frontline communities benefit from efforts to address climate change in Oakland, California. Founded in 2009, OCAC has advanced its social equity and climate justice goals by engaging community-based organizations and impacted residents in climate action, adaptation, and resilience planning in Oakland. The coalition partnered with the City of Oakland to develop Oakland’s Energy and Climate Action Plan (ECAP), which was adopted in December 2012.

Rhode Island Climate Change Collaborative

Researchers from the University of Rhode Island (URI) and the Rhode Island Sea Grant have joined forces to form the Rhode Island Climate Change Collaborative - linking experts in natural science, behavior science and communications to collectively engage in research and outreach to prepare Rhode Islanders and build resilient communities. This research collaborative project was funded by Rhode Island Sea Grant and the URI Coastal Institute and involves Rhode Island Sea Grant Extension, the URI Coastal Resources Center, the URI Coastal Institute, the URI Cancer Prevention Research Center, and the URI Harrington School of Communications.

Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council

In 1971, the Rhode Island General Assembly passed legislation that created the Coastal Resources Management Council (CRMC). The CRMC is a management agency with regulatory functions, tasked with continual planning and management of the coastal region and resources and with coordinating these tasks with local, state, and federal governments. Its primary responsibilities revolve around the preservation, protection, development, and restoration of Rhode Island's coastal areas through its comprehensive and integrated Special Area Management Plans (SAMPs).
