Research Activities

ACCAP supports excellence and relevance in science

We look for innovative ways to do research, engage stakeholders, and develop and evaluate decision support tools. This work includes:

  • Community needs assessments and vulnerability plans
  • Natural and cultural resource studies
  • Climate modeling
  • Development and testing of research products and tools
