About CIG

Regional Partnerships

The Climate Impacts Group (CIG) has cultivated close connections with the public, private, and North American tribal groups and agencies responsible for managing the region’s water, forest, fishery, and coastal resources. These relationships are essential to ensure that our research efforts result in information and products that are not only useful, but also used to shape decisions in the Pacific Northwest (PNW).

As a result of our interaction with stakeholders, the CIG has gained a clear picture of the current use and perceived value of climate forecasts by natural resource managers, insight into their decision calendars, and an understanding of institutional barriers to adaptability. Stakeholders benefit from the development of improved tools and information for planning, such as resource forecasts and regional- and resource-specific interpretations of global climate change.
