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).
Reports Prepared for the NPLCC by National Wildlife Federation
Climate Change Impacts on Freshwater and Marine/Coastal Resources 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 information with over 400 resources reviewed and over 100 people interviewed.
Advancing Landscape-Scale Conservation in the NPLCC
The report prepared by National Wildlife Federation, Advancing Landscape-Scale Conservation – An Assessment of Climate Change-Related Challenges, Needs, and Opportunities for the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative, is now available. Funded by the NPLCC in 2011, National Wildlife Federation hosted 13 web-based focus groups and three in-person workshops between September 2011 and June 2013. Information in this report and collected from approximately 195 participants was used by the NPLCC during development of the Science/TEK Strategy.
Landscape Information/Data Management Portal
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. A conservation planning atlas with spatial data is also being developed. A Draft NPLCC Product Delivery Procedures and Standard document is under development.
