University of Washington, NW Climate Adaptation Science Center

The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center is a federal-university partnership.

The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC) was established to help safeguard the natural and cultural resources of Idaho, Oregon, Washington and surrounding river basins. We are a federal-university partnership that produces relevant and accessible science on climate change impacts and adaptation actions for Northwest natural resource managers and policy-makers. This University-Federal partnership allows access to a broad range of scientific expertise, production of high-quality science and the leveraging of funds, resources and facilities. Key stakeholders of the NW CASC are the Department of Interior bureaus, including USGS, National Park Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Bureau of Land Management and Bureau of Reclamation, as well as Northwest tribes and Northwest State fish and wildlife and natural lands agencies.
