The NOAA Climate Program Office's Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program invests in research and engagement that expands regional capacity to adapt to climate change in the U.S. RISA's regional teams build sustained relationships between decision makers and researchers that support collaborative and equitable adaptation to climate risks. In Fiscal Year 2021, the RISA program launched 9 new 5-year RISA teams. This webinar series is a venue to introduce each team, discuss major themes and partners, and preview the projects that will advance climate knowledge and adaptation capacity in their regions. RISA's Great Lakes region serves the Great Lakes basin, including parts of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Ontario. The RISA team, Great Lakes Integrated Sciences and Assessments (GLISA), is based at the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, College of the Menominee Nation, and University of Wisconsin-Madison.RISA's South Central region includes the states of Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas. The RISA team, Southern Climate Impacts Planning Program (SCIPP), is based at the University of Oklahoma, Louisiana State University, Texas A&M University, and Texas Sea Grant. RISA's Pacific Northwest region includes the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and parts of Montana. The RISA team, Northwest Climate Resilience Collaborative (NCRC), is based at the University of Washington, Portland State University, Washington Sea Grant, Front and Centered, American Farmland Trust, and the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians.
