An ad hoc committee would plan and convene two public workshops. The focus would be on two areas about which insufficient attention has been paid to the potential contributions of behavioral and social sciences. The areas are incentives for mitigation (i.e., behavioral elements in a strategy to curb or reduce unwanted climate change) and facilitating adaptation (i.e., behavioral and social determinants of societal capacity to cope with unwanted climate change).
The workshops would demonstrate how behavioral responses can combine with technological and economic strategies to more effectively mitigate the impacts of and reduce vulnerabilities to climate change. The workshops would lay the foundation for further inquiries and concerted in-depth studies by panels of experts. The workshops, commissioned papers, and publication of workshop report covering both events are planned over an 18-month period.
