Identify critical knowledge gaps in adapting agriculture in the US Northwest to climate change (Determine top issues, synthesize existing research, find gap areas, identify target stakeholders for each, identify possible project leaders/teams);
Improve coordination, utility, infrastructure, and usefulness of climate decision-support tools that exist or are being generated or envisioned for the region; and
Produce a white paper that provides a concrete roadmap to guide regional efforts in the context of emerging national strategies to address knowledge gaps and provide useful decision support tools for climate change adaptation.
