Interagency Working Group


The federal Climate Change and Water Working Group (CCAWWG) provides engineering and scientific collaborations in support of water management under a changing climate. It is an effective working-level forum among federal agencies that fosters communication, operational, and research partnerships around user needs across the water resources and science communities of practice. This website is part of a technical forum to share expertise and leverage resources across federal agencies to meet common needs.

On this site you can discover more information about who is participating with the working group, in what activities they are engaged, where and how climate change impacts water resources, tools for water resources management, and educational information such as available training, conference proceedings and workshop presentations. You will also be able to provide feedback to the team about its ongoing efforts.

What's New

  • May 9, 2017:  20-22 June 2017 Hydrologic Impacts Under Climate Change (HIUCC) Virtual Course.  For additional information, click here.
  • Reclamation video series highlights CCAWWG Collaborative Research:  CCAWWG collaborative research is featured in a new video series announced on May 1, 2014 by the Bureau of Reclamation. The series highlights collaborative efforts conducted by Bureau of Reclamation, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Center for Atmospheric Research, and NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory in partnership with the Cooperative Institute for Research on Environmental Sciences (CIRES), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and others. These efforts are addressing climate change and variability impacts, estimating flood and drought hazards, and improving streamflow prediction. Information on these projects was also presented in the "2nd Annual Progress Meeting on Reclamation Climate and Hydrology Research" on January 14.
