Carolinas Integrated Sciences & Assessments
The Carolinas Integrated Sciences & Assessments (CISA) team conducts applied research in North Carolina and South Carolina that incorporates climate information into water, health and coastal management and decision making.
Learn more about our work on the Projects page.
CISA has established long-term partnerships and collaboration with researchers at other universities, federal, state, and local government agencies, NGO's, and the private sector. Working together enables us to leverage expertise and build robust and coordinated efforts around climate research and decision support activities. View our list of partners.
The Carolinas Climate Resilience Conference has been postponed to May 10–12, 2021, due to concerns associated with the novel coronavirus pandemic. The CISA team and conference planning committees agree that this postponement will help to ensure the health and safety of our participants. We are especially grateful to our first responders and health care professionals who are on the frontlines, helping to save the lives of so many. We look forward to convening the network in-person next spring.
