Informed Public Policy

Broader impacts can integrate one or multiple “cords” of research, education and outreach, and diversity activities, as mapped in examples below:

Research Education and Outreach Diversity Example impact
Yes Integrate analysis tools and the underlying databases so that economic policy makers can factor in potential impacts on biodiversity and natural ecosystems.
Yes Collaborate with External Advisory Board members to repeat an inaugural national Conference on the Long Run Sustainability of U.S. Agriculture at the National Press Club to again engage policymakers, industry leaders, NGOs, and academics on sustainability of agriculture from a local and global perspective and integrate project research results.
Yes Yes Hold workshops and symposia that inform forest managers, policy makers, and other stakeholders on how to improve ecosystem services via improved management of tree and fungal diversity using the advances developed in the project.
Yes Yes Engage agricultural producers and advisers through a “co-production” strategy to define climate-optimal systems and to understand stakeholder needs for information related to alternative agricultural systems. Partner with Extension to develop a decision support tool and train-the-trainer sessions to extend the project's impact beyond the initial funding period.
Yes Yes Yes Develop a socio-technical model that allows communities and policy makers to evaluate the structural vulnerability of buildings and develop an integrated scheme for retrofit prioritization.
