The EPI Center is bringing scientific evidence on key public issues to decision-makers in a way that is timely, clear, and actionable. 

Our team provides information on key issues to help shape debate and serve as a resource for policymakers who have questions about where to go for scientific insights.

We are currently reviewing additional opportunities for local and regional engagement. If you would like to be involved or learn more, contact us:

Thirty aspiring science diplomats gathered in South Africa for a regional workshop on science diplomacy, an inaugural training partnership.
Jeffrey Dukes gets straight to the point. “Climate change is real and it isn’t going to correct itself. The wise thing to do, in my opinion, is to prepare for those changes, and try to minimize [them].” He notes that communicating climate science is about engaging your audience, “speak[ing] to their values and concerns, not just tell[ing] them what you think they should hear.”
On May 8, Jessica Hellmann was one of eight recipients of the 2017 Climate Adaptation Leadership Award, for her role in developing new ecosystem management techniques. Like the other AAAS Leshner Leadership Institute Public Engagement Fellows, she has excelled in both her research career and as a communicator and leader. She finds that her engagement activities can often feed into her scientific work and make it more effective and readily applicable.
BOSTON – Fisheries around the world are likely to come under increasing pressure from climate change. But effective, cooperative management approaches can blunt the projected impacts on both fish stocks and on the billions of people who depend on them – and in some cases even improve the health of key fisheries.
