Stakeholders Decision-Making Timeframes

Scaling scientific products to actionable policy is essential to integrating science and decision support. When providing scientific information to decision-makers, timing is key. Too often critical information reaches the decision-making process too late, missing the opportunity for new science to inform stakeholders. As an effort to better inform the CMS initiative, the CMS Applications Team has developed a decision-making timeframe table of various carbon data stakeholders directly related to the CMS science team applications goals.

Presented in this diagram are the policy timelines from some of our Policy Speaker Series stakeholders: [pdf]
