The new course "Addressing Climate-related Uncertainty" will be piloted this February 11-15, 2013 at our facility in Shepherdstown, WV.  The course is being designed in partnership with staff and scientists from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Geological Survey and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration.
A key aspect of the training will occur in capstone teams. Before the course, participants will submit a description of a decision that they're facing. It might be a listing decision, FERC relicensing study plan request, recovery or conservation plan, mitigation determination, or another decision that you would like to structure in a way that incorporates climate change effects. If your decision problem is selected, you will ‘own’ it and become the coordinator for that team for training purposes. This will provide context and practice in applying principles of decision analysis to address uncertainty for real-life examples.
