S.T. Lee Fellowship Presentation: Climate solutions for Pacific Island resilience
Aug 3, 2022 at 9:00 am – 10:00 am
Title: Climate Solutions for Pacific Island Resilience – the Pacific RISA Program
Description: Laura Brewington (Arizona State University, the East-West Center) will provide an introduction to the Pacific Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program, one of 11 NOAA RISA programs in the United States focused on regional climate science and adaptation. Now in its 16th year, the Pacific RISA is generating equitable climate solutions in Hawaii and the US-Affiliated Pacific Islands through stakeholder-driven research and applications. Following an overview of the program, Brewington will share some of Pacific RISA’s current work and potential synergies with climate research programs in Alaska and the Arctic.
About the S.T. Lee Young Scientist Exchange: The S.T. Lee Young Scientist Exchange is a partnership between IARC and the Antarctic Research Centre, Victoria University of Wellington. The program supports exchange of students and early career scientists between the two institutions to promote the sharing of knowledge and ideas between Arctic and Antarctic focused research. The S.T. Lee Lecture was established by Singaporean philanthropist Lee Seng Tee. IARC also participates in the S.T. Lee Fellowship program, which supports lectures by senior-level researchers.
