Working together to adapt to a rapidly changing North

Apologies but due to a technical issue the first 5 minutes of the recorded presentation is missing.

Speakers: Leanna Heffner (Northwest Boreal LCC), Aaron Poe (Aleutian and Bering Sea Initiative), Danielle Stickman (Western Alaska LCC)

Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) bring partners together to work on conservation solutions that help communities and decision makers adapt to and thrive in a rapidly changing north. Alaskans face many challenges as the climate warms, erosion accelerates, storms and flooding intensify, sea ice and river ice changes, wildfires increase, and subsistence resources shift.

These challenges are too complex for any one entity to address alone. By working together we are better able to preserve the natural and cultural heritage of current and future generations of Alaskans. Despite recent changes in federal funding, and with new help from private funders, four of the five original Alaskan LCCs are still active:

  • Aleutian and Bering Sea Initiative
  • Northwest Boreal LCC
  • North Pacific LCC
  • Western Alaska LCC

Currently the LCCs are helping to lead projects focused around climate resilience and adaptation, coordinated and community-led monitoring, and collaborative, climate-smart approaches to land use planning. This presentation will give an overview of the four Alaska LCCs.
