SW CASC Advisory Committee

SW CASC Advisory Committee

The SW CASC Advisory Committee (AC) is composed of Tribal, federal, and state agency employees from the Southwest region (Arizona, California, Utah, and Nevada). The AC helps inform the science priorities of the SW CASC and ensures that the SW CASC focuses on science that is useful for managing natural and cultural resources and that helps communities plan for and adapt to changes in climate. Members of the AC provide information and guidance on regional management challenges and climate science needs that help shape the SW CASC’s long-term (five-year) science planning efforts.
