U14B: Water in the Coupled Earth-Human System: Convergent Science, Decision-Making, and Community Action

Producing water science which informs policy and/or leads to community action can often prove illusive. Ethical, culturally appropriate, socially compelling, scientifically sound, and economically viable water related solutions will require convergence of scientific research across disciplines as well as a better understanding of and responsiveness to the values, needs and priorities of decision makers, community members, and practitioners. Leaders working on the boundary between science, environmental health, and social action will provide their perspectives as to what the needs and priorities are, while providing concrete examples and guidance for how to translate science to action across a diverse set of fields (e.g. media and communications, public health, policy making, and resource management).

This session provides a forum for an active dialogue between scientists and a diverse group of decision-makers and experienced influencers that will be continued in related scientific sessions where panelists will act as discussants.
