The ALCC has asked the U.S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution (U.S. Institute) to assist them in engaging a third-party neutral facilitator who can work with the steering committee to identify key landscape scale resource management needs common to many of the ALCC partners. The overall goals of this project are twofold. One is to identify key future landscape scale resource management and science needs that are common to many of the ALCC partners, and in doing so, increase understanding of future landscape scale information needs among the ALCC steering committee members.
This report is the result of an assessment of science and information needs identified by land and resource managers working in Alaskan Arctic, with a focus on needs related to expected changes in climate. The primary objective of the report is to determine how the Arctic LCC can best support and strengthen the connection between science and management in the area of climate change.
