The ACCS seeks to meet the needs for science that empowers people to adapt and survive climate and environmental change.
Meeting this challenge will be one of the defining features of the 21st Century. The quantitative science within the context of climate is broad and serves many stake holders. Knowledge of the mechanisms which control climate is essential empowers all people are to actualize long term well-being via robust climate adaption and mitigation policy. The ACCS fits alongside other centres that focus on conservation and policy aspects of climate to use evidence-based approaches to reach this goal. The Center helps meet the national need to maintain internationally recognized critical mass of expertise of climate change.
