We conclude by suggesting that the federal government fund studies of social networking, boundary organizations, and other mechanisms that enable deliberation with analysis on climate-related response options among public- and private-sector organizations; build on models such as the RISA centers to expand the body of practical experience in using networks and boundary organizations to address the issues of climate change; and work with philanthropies and other nongovernmental organizations to develop innovative ways of coordinating networks and supporting boundary organizations to provide distributed mechanisms for learning to provide climate-related decision support.
