Arizona researchers are meeting with the public Saturday to discuss strategies for dealing with extreme weather such as heat and drought.

The gathering is part of a six-city effort to discuss climate hazards and make recommendations for dealing with them to policymakers.

“There is not a lot of ways as I said before to have for a single person to have a voice in the way that decisions are made whether it be at the very local level or at the national level and we feel like this project is an opportunity to give people a voice that they didn’t have otherwise,” says Ira Bennett, an associate director for research at Arizona State University and was an investigator on the project.

The daylong event will take place starting at 8 a.m. at the Arizona Science Center. Participants will be paid for their time.
