Bridging the gap between A&E practice and climate science

In the report entitled “Climate Forward: How Climate Projections Are(n’t) Used to Inform Design,” the University of Minnesota Climate Adaptation Partnership or MCAP, in a partnership with the national interdisciplinary design firm HGA, reveals the wide gap between the current state of architecture and engineering (A&E) practice and climate science today. The report draws on a detailed review of academic and professional literature related to A&E climate services and data usage. Also, the report includes insights from a national online survey of A&E professionals and interviews with A&E leaders. Key recommendations highlight the critical need for “boundary” organizations and data developers to build new partnerships and create new capacities, bridging the gap between A&E practice and climate science.
