Kathleen Ernst

Swedish Project Support, 2017

Kathleen Ernst, of the University of Tennessee, undertook research into the strengthening of climate services and social planning in Sweden. Through several case studies, she explored options for bridging the growing gap between the scientific community’s knowledge about climate change and the practical use of that information to plan for and adapt to the changing climate. Funds from the Roth Endowment allowed Ernst to attend the European Climate Adaptation Conference to learn from the European Union’s approaches to environmental issues.
