The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting 2018

For the first time, the AGU Fall Meeting will be held in Washington, D.C., with the event marking the launch AGU’s Centennial. A wide variety of events are being planned that will take advantage of this special location that will showcase AGU's science to the U.S. and international policy community, students, and public); leverage the local scientific community, including events with the Smithsonian, National Academies, and others; and, offer field trips to view the local geology and research institutes. The Fall Meeting will also offer more workshops as well as new Tutorial sessions to help students and researchers learn about new approaches and techniques and introduce exciting science in other disciplines.

As the largest Earth and space science gathering in the world, the Fall Meeting brings together a global community of scientists drawn from myriad fields of study whose work protects the health and welfare of people worldwide, spurs innovation, and informs decisions that are critical to the sustainability of the Earth.

AGWA will be participating in the AGU 2018 Fall Meeting. We've submitted proposals for multiple events. AGWA will co-organize a short session on "Aligning the technical analysis to the needs of a decision maker for water resources planning under deeply uncertain futures." AGWA is also helping to organize a proposed science-policy dialogue session around conducting research that is both policy-relevant and actionable.
