Opportunities

Partner with CCASS

The Center for Climate Adaptation Science and Solutions at the University of Arizona provides services and benefits to both stakeholders (from local, state, and federal employees to elected officials, tribes, businesses, and citizens) and affiliates from multiple UA departments as they work to connect rapidly evolving scientific understanding of a changing climate with management practices in the U.S. and internationally. We invite you to join us and engage in CCASS opportunities and efforts.

About Us

The world must increasingly adapt to the global challenges stemming from a changing climate. CCASS brings together the wealth of expertise at the University of Arizona to support sound management choices in the context of global change, linking science, the information needs of managers, and decision-making. More ›
