About Us

Partner with CCASS

The world must increasingly adapt to global challenges stemming from a changing climate. Smart adaptation and a focus on preparedness for a wide range of possible future conditions puts us all on sound footing. 

The Center for Climate Adaptation Science and Solutions brings together a wealth of expertise at the University of Arizona to support sound management choices in the context of this change, linking science, information needs of managers, and decision-making. CCASS provides services and benefits to both stakeholders (from local, state, and federal employees to elected officials, tribes, businesses, and citizens) and affiliates from the UA as they work to connect rapidly evolving scientific understanding of a changing climate with management practices in the U.S. and internationally. Please join us in CCASS opportunities and efforts.
