We invite proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia addressing one of the following themes:

    Theme 1: Scientific Evidence

Theme 2: Assessing Impacts in Divergent Ecosystems

Theme 3: Human Impacts and Impacts on Humans

Theme 4: Technical, Political, and Social Responses

It is becoming increasingly important for scientists to communicate their findings effectively to those informing and formulating policy. Climate change—arguably the most serious challenge facing mankind—requires exceptional abilities to communicate complex science, while managing the uncertainties that characterise it. With growing pressure for policy-makers, practitioners, civil society organisations, businesses, and members of the public to change their own practices to reduce greenhouse gases and adapt to impacts of climate change, scientists are under increasing pressure to engage with these audiences effectively.

We invite papers for this Special Issue from a variety of perspectives and methods from across academia, policy, NGOs, and practitioner communities that advance and demonstrate the impact of how communication of evidence and cross-stakeholder collaboration can inform resilient solutions to climate change. This will involve, but will not be limited to, addressing the following questions:

• How can scientific evidence be better communicated to more efficiently inform decision-making on climate change?

• How can the social and natural sciences work together to inform communication and collaboration on climate change?

• How can cross-sectorial and cross-stakeholder collaboration lead to better evidence, science communication, and more resilient responses to climate change?

• What evidence is there of communication and collaboration across scales: household, community, local, national, regional, and international levels?
