Universities receive grants to study climate change decisions
Date:10/21/2010

s receiving awards are:

Arizona State University, $1,300,000
Title: Decision Center for a Desert City II: Urban Climate Adaptation

ASU's Decision Center for a Desert City (DCDC) will develop fundamental new knowledge about decision making under uncertainty from three perspectives: climatic uncertainties, urban-system impacts, and adaptation decisions. DCDC scientists will use social science principles to develop and test an integrated decision-support process for policy making and examine the interconnected water, energy, and land-use decisions that exist in a complex dynamic urban system under climate change.

Carnegie-Mellon University, $1,200,006
Title: Center on Climate Decision Making

This distributed interdisciplinary collaborative group will combine knowledge and research methods from behavioral and decision sciences, engineering, and natural science to assist individuals, corporations, governments, and the international community to better address many of the difficult climate decisions they now face. The group's researchers, who are associated with about 10 different organizations, will address a range of topics including decisions about reducing emissions of carbon dioxide from the energy system, decisions related to adapting to the impacts of climate change, issues that arise as a result of interactions between reducing emissions and adapting to change, and dealing with unexpectedly rapid or large changes or impacts.

University of Chicago, $1,199,998
Title: Center for Robust Decision Making on Climate and Energy Policy

This interdisciplinary collaborative group will develop and distribute tools to help individuals and organizations make more informed decisions relating both to short-term economic disruptions caused by climate policies and long-term consequences of climate change. The group primarily will produce a powerful, key group of components that can be used to model decision outcomes and help ans
