We have a new paper with Klaus Keller and Casey Helgeson in the Annual Review of Earth and Planetary Sciences. We review several key challenges in decision-relevant climate risk management research, including:

  • linking the required disciplines;
  • identifying relevant values and objectives;
  • identifying and quantifying important uncertainties;
  • resolving interactions between decision levers and the system dynamics;
  • quantifying the trade-offs between diverse values under deep and dynamic uncertainties;
  • communicating key information with decision-makers; and
  • linking decision-making needs to research design and execution.

We then describe avenues for overcoming these challenges to enable not only doing the science right, but doing the right science.
