Pacific Islands-Alaska CASC collaboration

The PI-AK CASC collaboration is aimed at bringing together scientist and resource managers from the Pacific and Alaska regions to share insights on related climate adaptation challenges in Ridge-to-Reef (R2R) and Icefield-to-Ocean (I2O) ecosystems. Similarities in landscapes and communities in these regions outweigh differences in temperatures, highlighting the benefits to climate science and adaptation efforts of building cross-regional relationships.



Pacific Regional Invasive Species & Climate Change (RISCC) management collaboration

With the double threat of climate change and increasing encroachment of invasive species into vulnerable island ecosystems, PI-CASC has joined with the East-West Center, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Hawaiʻi Invasive Species Council, and the Coordinating Group on Alien Pest Species (CGAPS) to explore perspectives, needs, and research related to the confluence of invasive species management and climate adaptation.
