As a Research Center at a public research university, the unifying goal of all our research is to support evidence-based climate decisions, policy, and action in the Commonwealth and beyond. We welcome the opportunity to serve as a resource for policymakers and also research the impact our work has on climate change decision-making in Massachusetts and around the world.
