Pacific Islands Climate Change Cooperative 2010 Annual Report
On behalf of the Pacific Islands Climate Change Cooperative (PICCC) I'm pleased to announce the publication of our first Annual Report. The PICCC is a collaborative of federal and state agencies, indigenous organizations, research institutions and non-governmental organizations working together to develop climate change adaptation knowledge, tools and strategies for the conservation of Pacific Islands biocultural heritage.
The PICCC was is part of a network of conservation cooperatives established in 2009 - 2010 and funded initially by the U.S. Department of Interior. By leveraging the collective capacity of its members, building a team of experts, and funding research projects, the PICCC provides critical resources for Pacific Island communities adapting to a changing climate.
