  Our ability to adapt to long-term climate change is enhanced through partnerships and cooperative efforts. The purpose of collaboration is to capitalize on the strength of each organization in a multi-disciplinary approach that the nature of research subjects requires. In short, collaboration is an integral part of WRAP research.

Collaborative partners:

  • Other federal agencies, e.g., USDA, DoD
  • State and local governments, e.g., New York City climate change impact adaptation in water resources planning
  • American Tribal Council
  • Water planning agencies and water utilities, e.g., American Society of Civil Engineers
  • American Water Works Association
  • Private industry, corporations, and consultants
  • International organizations
  • Academic institutions:
    • University of Cincinnati
    • Washington University at St. Louis
    • University of Michigan
    • University of Central Florida

WRAP stakeholder involvement is accomplished through:

  • Stakeholder panel workshops, which will help to identify research topics to meet the needs of program offices and water managers and promote research product transfer to end users
  • Surveys of the nation’s water utilities for their considerations of climate change in water resource planning
  • Cooperative research with academic institutions, nongovernmental organizations, and international organizations
  • Selection of a water district representative in charge of case studies on global change; this will accelerate the transfer of field-tested adaptation techniques and methods to other areas with similar global change attributes.
