Science in Environmental Decision-Making

NCSE will mark its 30th year as an organization in 2020 by mirroring the theme of our inaugural conference, Science in Environmental Decision-Making. In today’s world, where environmental challenges have grown more complex, the risks greater, and the stakes higher, the role of science in environmental decision-making remains as essential as ever. 

NCSE 2020 will explore the various ways that science serves and contributes to the decision-making process, highlighting cases in which science has helped improve environmental decisions, as well as examples in which a lack of science has compromised the efficacy of decisions and policies. The Annual Conference will bring together scientists, decision-makers, industry leaders, and subject-matter experts, to effectively bridge the cultures of science and policy-making toward a more resilient and sustainable future and societal well-being.
