Building Capacity for Actionable Climate Science in Alaska

This study will build on the work of several recent studies that aim to uncover the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed for knowledge co-production in climate and conservation science and how knowledge and experience is deployed in these efforts.

Climate Change Adaptation in Alaska: Science, Planning and Action

This project compiles and analyses examples of climate adaptation in Alaska from a range of sectors including forestry/wildlife, subsistence food harvest, coastal vulnerability, terrestrial infrastructure, shipping, commercial fishing and the oil and gas industry.  

Contributions to the Integrated Arctic Management Report


ACCAP and SNAP provided writing and editorial assistance for this report as well as maps and graphics depicting ecologically and culturally important areas, biota, and processes, natural resources, and key drivers of environmental changes in the Arctic.

Meta-analysis of Needs Assessments

In this project, 65 documents that address climate change research needs in Alaska were analyzed. Common needs were identified, as well as gaps where needs have not been assessed.

Tribal Climate Adaptation Planning in Nome

The Nome Eskimo Community (NEC), in collaboration with ACCAP, will develop a climate adaptation plan for the tribal organizations located in the Nome Census area. This includes tribal members of NEC, Native Village of Solomon, Native Village of Council, and King Island Native Community.

USDA Alaska Climate Adapters

This review expanded upon a previous effort and includes updated sources of information (2013-2018) and an analysis that synthesized what stakeholders are saying about what climate adaptation research is needed in their communities.
