Working Groups

SDWG | Societal Dimensions Working Group

Our Mission

The overall goal of the Societal Dimensions Working Group is to enhance CESM and its application in order to improve understanding of the interactions between human and earth systems. The group was started in 2011 with a focus on interactions between CESM and two research and user communities: integrated assessment modeling and water management. More broadly, the group's mission is to foster and sustain dialogue between the CESM community and other communities of researchers and practitioners studying interaction of society and climate change and variability and implementing measures to adapt to or mitigate climate climate.
