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 Pacific Islands region includes Hawai'i, Guam, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands, Republic of Palau, Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Federated States of Micronesia. The RISA team, Pacific RISA, is based at the Arizona State University Global Institute of Sustainability and Innovation, East-West Center, University of Hawai'i at Manoa, NOAA/NCEI's Center for Weather and Climate (CWC), and the NOAA Joint Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research (JIMAR). RISA's Mid-Atlantic region includes Virginia, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and parts of West Virginia. The RISA team, Mid-Atlantic RISA (MARISA), is based at the RAND Corporation, Pennsylvania State University, Johns Hopkins University, Cornell University, Virginia Institute of Marine Science, Morgan State University, and Carnegie Mellon University. RISA's Urban Northeast region serves the urban corridor from Philadelphia to New York City to Boston, which includes New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and some counties of Pennsylvania, New York, New Hampshire, and Maine. The RISA team, Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban
Northeast (CCRUN), is based at Columbia University, Boston University, Rutgers University, Drexel University, Stevens Institute of Technology, and City University of New York - Hunter College.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.
