Reducing climate risks requires robust and reliable information that people can use when making decisions. Building on the work of the Climate Impacts Group (CIG), the Center for Health and the Global Environment (CHanGE) and the Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC), EarthLab will deepen our capacity to inform societal choices on climate change in the context of human health, smart cities, environmental equity and thriving ecosystems. A high priority is to seek projects that link CIG, CHanGE and NW CSC with emerging cross-UW initiatives including Urban@UW and Population Health. In addition, we will expand our work to tackle carbon pollution through innovations in law and policy with the Evans School of Public Policy and Governance, School of Law and the College of Arts and Sciences and through technology with the College of Engineering.
