About this organization






Our mission: to perform the science needed now to best inform policies and decisions aimed at restoring a safe and stable climate and preparing society for climate change impacts that can no longer be avoided. Woodwell Climate Research Center is, fundamentally, a scientific research organization, but we stay sharply focused on ensuring that our work has impact. We strive to develop partnerships with organizations that can use our work to deliver unique or outsized results. At Woodwell Climate, success is measured by our ability to incorporate our science into public- and private-sector decisions, policies, and practices.


Policy relevant research - scientific excellence is the foundation for all of WHRC's activities, and distinguishes WHRC from other NGOs in the environmental sector. Through a holistic, multidisciplinary, applied, and team-focused approach, we seek to create breakthrough understanding of climate change impacts and solutions, for the purpose of informing sound environmental policies from the local to global scale. WHRC's research is focused on the land-climate connection - how changes in land use affect the climate system; how the changing climate is altering systems on land such as forests, ecosystems and agriculture; and what land-management strategies can harness the power of nature to slow climate change. Most of this research is conducted in the Arctic and the tropics-critical regions where natural systems contain disproportionate shares of the planet's biodiversity and stored carbon, but where deforestation, agriculture, fire, and climatic warming place these assets at great risk.
