Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) are novel public-private partnerships that bring together Tribes, First Nations, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, research institutions, and industry to address the challenges and opportunities of a rapidly changing environment.
Where We Work
The LCCs and our partners in Alaska and western Canada are working to...
Our Work Partnering to take on 21st century challenges
The five LCCs in Alaska and western Canada bring together diverse groups to find common ground, leverage resources, share information, and develop research, tools, and adaptation strategies.
By working together we aim to support collaborative stewardship of our natural resources, promote forward-thinking economic development, protect our traditional heritage, and enhance resilience in our land, waters, and communities throughout the changing north.
Success Story: Coastal Communities Adapting to Environmental Changes
In 2016, leaders from the Aleutian Islands to the Chukchi Sea came together for a series of Coastal Resilience and Adaptation Workshops, spearheaded by three Landscape Conservation Cooperatives and the Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association. Tribal leaders, resource managers, community planners, and scientists explored strategies to adapt to these unprecedented changes along Alaska's coasts.
This work has continued through adaptation planning in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta region, as well as through web-based tools found at www.adaptalaska.com.
