Description: 

"Complex socio-ecological issues, such as climate change have historically been addressed through technical problem solving methods. Yet today, climate science approaches are increasingly accounting for the roles of diverse social perceptions,experiences, cultural norms, and worldviews. In support of this shift, we developed a research program on Hawaiʻi Island that utilizes knowledge co-production to integrate the diverse worldviews of natural and cultural resource managers, policy professionals, and researchers within actionable science products."
