Summary "As a global challenge with profound implications at the local level, climate change provides new opportunities for individual engagement. Communities around the world have their own unique experiences with the effects of climate change, as well as drastically different climate adaptation needs. This gives individuals an unprecedented role to play in sharing information and guiding policymaking through citizen-based observation. In "Using Citizen-Based Observations to Plan for Climate Change," Sarah Abdelrahim looks at the work of a variety of citizen-based observation networks, also known as citizens' observatories. She recommends greater cooperation and support from government agencies and decision-makers for these networks as a key aspect of any and all climate change adaptation strategies"--Publisher's description
