"Data to Decision for Climate Resilience" is a new cluster with a short
life-span, set to expire end of this year.  The objective is to
experiment-with and develop a set of CMAP-generated web-accessible concept
maps that can be used as a reference resource for climate resilience
challenges.  All are welcomed to tomorrow's (Wednesday) meeting at 1300 hrs
Eastern.  If you are inclined to read the larger context of this
experiment, see the <OUT-OF-SCOPE-VISION> tagged content below.

The group meets every other Wednesday.  The group met once on 2017-10-04
to preview the sprint that starts this Wednesday
under the theme "Food Security - Indigenous Peoples - Pacific Northwest -
Salmon, berries, and water resources".  For this meeting, we shall focus on
the data-driven decisions and policy instruments.  On subsequent meetings
once every two weeks until 2017-11-29, the group shall work towards the
"data" end of the data-to-decisions pipeline under the same theme.

More information, including how to join the meeting this Wednesday, is
available on the D2D cluster wiki page
<http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Data_to_Decisions> (or, see below).  The
cluster's 'root' concept map is accessible via

the US Climate Resilience Toolkit and the USGCRP's Global Change
Information System.

*<OUT-OF-SCOPE-VISION>* Although outside the scope of this experiment, the
ultimate vision is to enable traceable climate resilience solutions that
(roughly speaking) start at "data"-type concepts that are linked to "tools
and models"-type concepts that are linked to "policy and decisions"-type
concepts.  Not only is the provenance evident for such resilience
solutions, but pointers to specific concepts in the concept map repository
will enable discovery of related concepts.  This further enables traceable
resilience solutions to be repurposed for other contexts (e.g. for another
location, a related climate stressor, a related climate impact, using
related observations, related models, related policy instrument, etc).
This approach has clear limitations in scalability that may be ameliorated
with semantic technologies. *</OUT-OF-SCOPE-VISION> *
