Working Together to Promote  Resilience & Climate Adaptation throughout Alaska 

Partnering with several organizations and communities across Alaska, we are working together to build a coalition to address climate change threats and coastal hazards.

CONNECTING COASTAL LEADERS
 
The series consisted of four regional workshops held in the regional hub communities of Nome, Unalaska, King Salmon, and Kotzebue.
 
The workshops brought together tribal leaders, scientists, land and resource managers, and community planners to identify tools and strategies to address the challenges of a rapidly changing coast. Each event provided a unique opportunity to network, share ideas and strategies, identify gaps in knowledge, and maximize collective efforts.

What is the Western AK LCC?

It's a partnership!

This partnership works to share knowledge, information and opportunities to help decision makers throughout western Alaska who are working to address or understand how changing climates are effecting our land and sea resources.  

  

​Science and Decision-Maker Needs

The ability to achieve our mission - providing science products that can help support conservation efforts - depends on successfully identifying what information decision makers need. Selection of topics for LCC focus takes place through workshops with decision makers and experts as well as Steering Committee deliberations. Learn more about LCC priorities and how they are determined on the Science page. ​ 

LCCs in Alaska

There are five LCCs in Alaskapart of an LCC National Network comprised of 22 individual LCCs that span most of the continent.
