- 1. Managed Retreat: An Introduction and Exploration of Policy Options
Managed retreat is a tool for community adaptation to repeated environmental threats that involves the physical relocation of people, structures, and infrastructures away from areas exposed to repeat hazards. In this study, we introduce and explore managed retreat as an adaptive strategy to climate hazards with the goal of identifying the policy options for enacting managed retreat and exploring these policies’ strengths and limitations.
- 2. Framework for the Advancement of Inclusion, Equity, and Justice in the Weather, Water, and Climate Enterprise
The weather, water, and climate (WWC) enterprise provides science and services critical to the future of society. Making these sciences and services truly inclusive and beneficial to all people is necessary to ensure that they are impactful, meaningful, and ethical. Here, we present a set of principles, actionable steps, and metrics to support and outline a shift towards a more inclusive, equitable, and just culture within and beyond the enterprise.
- 3. Actionable Scientific Assessments for the Energy Sector
Understanding, accounting for, and communicating weather and climate variables is critical for the planning and optimization of the energy system. This puts increasing pressure on the scientific community to provide the right information to meet the key decision-making needs of the energy sector. This American Meteorological Society (AMS) Policy Program study is the second of two pilot projects on the provision of actionable information for decision-making through the tailored and targeted assessment of weather and climate science.
- 4. What's it Worth? Four Perspectives on the Valuation of the Weather, Water, Climate Enterprise
Valuation is critical to decision making at all levels. The set of studies synthesized here can contribute to a common understanding how value can be enhanced and communicated within and outside of the weather, water, and climate enterprise.
- 5. AMS Community Synthesis on Geohealth
This American Meteorological Society Policy Program study synthesizes input from the AMS community on the various connections, gaps, and opportunities at the intersection of health, geoscience, and the Earth system.
- 6. Three Policies Shape Enterprise Value: Minor Adjustments Could Enhance the Societal Benefit
This American Meteorological Society Policy Study examines the role that public policy plays in determining the sum societal value of Earth Observations, Science, and Services (OSS) as well as the allocation of that value and the costs of OSS production across society.
