Climate and Society Publication: It's a Process!
Each issue of Climate and Society centers on a specific, timely, climate-related development. It captures state-of-the-art practice in a policy-relevant language. The publication evolves from discussion with partners and practitioners, writing and review by leading authorities, and synthesis from a broad range of relevant fields. The process is designed to capture and lay out the current state of knowledge about the problem and identify key practical challenges and opportunities.
