Preparation/Adaptation Working Groups (PAWGs)
Preparation/Adaptation Working Groups (PAWGs) have been formed to assist Ecology and CTED in developing recommendations for the Governor on how Washington can prepare and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
The Departments of Agriculture, Health, Natural Resources and Ecology will lead PAWGs that will examine climate change impacts, and identify preparation/adaptation strategies and additional research needs. PAWGs are structured around five sectors where the Ecology/CTED Economic Report and the Climate Impacts Group at the University of Washington identify the greatest impacts for Washington State:

PAWG recommendations will focus on strategies that can most effectively and immediately move the state (at all levels) forward in integrating climate impacts into future decision-making in straightforward and meaningful ways.
