OEHHA’s Indicators of Climate Change in California workshop June 16-17, 2015

A workshop to collect input for the next update to the OEHHA report, Indicators of Climate Change in California, has been scheduled for June 16-17, 2015 and will be held in the Sierra Hearing Room at the CalEPA Headquarters Building located at 1001 I Street, Sacramento. The updated report is scheduled for release in 2017. Seating is limited, so be sure to register if you plan to attend.

The workshop will also be live webcast with the URL only active during the workshop.

This workshop is part of OEHHA’s ongoing effort to examine potential indicators that should be tracked to present a comprehensive picture of climate change and its impacts on California.

The workshop goals are to:
* Stimulate and collect ideas for the best indicators of climate change in California
* Explore how climate change indicators can be integrated into climate policy and action
* Discuss emerging evidence of climate change, its drivers and its impacts that are of particular significance to California and warrant further investigation
* Get feedback on the existing indicators and how to improve them

The draft agenda lists CDPH’s Paul English and Vicki Kramer as participants, along with speakers from Cal/EPA, OEHHA, Air Resources Board, Stanford, NOAA, several UC campuses, and many other agencies.

The 2013 version of the report is available online for viewing.
