CRIDA Workshop at University of Idaho

CRIDA Workshop Flyer
This two-day workshop at the University of Idaho will focus on a next-generation methodology for assessing and addressing climate risk in water resources management and planning. Climate Risk Informed Decision Analysis (CRIDA) is a means for implementing holistic climate-resilient water resources solutions. This workshop is designed to help participants from various disciplines to better understand the novel CRIDA approach while simultaneously exploring potential implications in terms of water governance, engineering, and ecosystems. Dr. John Matthews, a co-author of CRIDA and the Executive Director and co-founder of AGWA will lead the workshop.

Climate Science to Engineering Operations for Watershed Management Workshop

In 2011 the Climate Change and Water Working Group (CCAWWG) issued the user needs report, “Addressing Climate Change in Long-Term Water Resources Planning and Management: User Needs for Improving Tools and Information Report” ( Since then, CCAWWG agencies have engaged in multiple research and application activities to address those needs. CCAWWG will host this workshop to review that work and to help design its planned 2016 update to that 2011 assessment of its agency partners’ needs for climate science and climate change information.
