North Pacific Full Year 2012 Project Funding
The NPLCC is pleased to announce the award of over $580,000 to 17 projects in 2012. Eight of the projects address using Traditional Ecological Knowledge, where appropriate, to help inform natural and cultural resource management. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provided funds to the NPLCC for these projects. Two of the Traditional Ecological Knowledge projects are co-sponsored by the Northwest Climate Science Center (NWCSC).
Climate Change Impacts on Freshwater and Marine and Coastal Ecosystems in the NPLCC
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service commissioned two reports that compile literature and synthesize information about climate change effects and adaptation approaches for freshwater and for marine and coastal ecosystems in the entire range of the NPLCC. Prepared by National Wildlife Federation, these reports include the latest science and information with over 400 resources reviewed and over 100 people interviewed. The draft final reports were reviewed by 63 reviewers and will be finalized later this summer.

Landscape Information/Data Management Portal (LC-Map)
The NPLCC is developing a web-based collaborative workspace for partners to securely share, access, and analyze common datasets. We are developing a platform that facilitates data discovery & acquisition, analysis & modeling, visualization, and storage across organizational boundaries.
Spatial Data Inventory
The NPLCC, along with a team of federal, state, and NGO partners, is developing an inventory of GIS data sets related to natural and cultural resource management and climate change resiliency across the region. This inventory will advance the state of the knowledge on spatial conservation planning and design in the region, as well as form a basis for determining science priorities.
