After two weeks of hard work, the Climate Change and Hazards institute participants successfully finished the event's activities in Panama. The teams were committed to collaborating across disciplinary, cultural, and linguistic boundaries.  Overcoming a ubiquitous wave of the flu, their focus and patience paid off in the end in the form of five creative white papers and approximately six pages of research agenda questions.  The outcomes and documents will be polished and edited in the coming weeks for broader distribution.  In addition to those attending with support from the NSF, broader participation was achieved through the knowledge environment's structure.  Preliminary metrics indicate 10,000+ page views coming from 446 unique visitors from 20 countries during the institute in June. Many thanks to all for their essential participation.
