A collaborative approach to solutions.
Woodwell Climate Research Center’s leading scientists are dedicated to creating breakthrough insights that can directly inform policy and decision-making. We bring to bear a comprehensive toolkit—field and laboratory science, remote sensing, and computer modeling—to understand the interplay between human activities and natural systems with the potential to make or break our climate future. Together with collaborators, stakeholders, and government officials in more than 20 countries across six continents, we’re turning knowledge into action and far-reaching impact.
The climate crisis demands that we bring to bear all of the learning, expertise, innovation, and creativity that we can collectively muster. That’s why we cultivate partnerships at every level, across continents and fields of study—from international organizations and national governments to public and private institutions, as well as Indigenous peoples and local communities. We collaborate throughout the research process to ensure that our discoveries can be integrated into real-world decision-making.
Our strategic plan reflects our focus on the work with the greatest potential for impact.
