Each year the Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center receives congressionally appropriated funds from the USGS National Climate Adaptation Science Center to conduct or support strategically important scientific activities that also address tactical priorities. Final funding decisions are made by the SE CASC federal director.
Science Priorities and Principles of Operation for the SE CASC, developed in consultation with a Stakeholder Advisory Committee, will guide science funding decisions in FY18 and FY19. The SAC includes members that represent the interests and priorities of key federal, state, and tribal partners working on climate change adaptation in the Southeast, including the Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park Service, NOAA, and the U.S. Forest Service. In general, all projects funded by the SE CASC address decision-focused interests of stakeholders and develop methods, data, or interpretive information usable at landscape and regional scales.
