Managing for the Future in a Rapidly Changing Arctic: A Report to the President by the Interagency Working Group on Coordination of Domestic Energy Development and Permitting in Alaska
John Bengston, National Marine Mammal Laboratory
Brendan Kelly, Executive Office of the President
Joel Clement, Department of Interior
The United States is an Arctic nation, one of only eight such nations worldwide that are responsible for the stewardship of a region undergoing dramatic environmental, social, and economic changes. The implications of these changes demand a fresh look at how the Federal Government and its partners address management challenges in the region. In consultation with the National Ocean Council, the National Security Staff, and the Arctic Research Commission, the Interagency Working Group on Coordination of Domestic Energy Development and Permitting in Alaska (Alaska Interagency Working Group) initiated this report to describe these challenges as they relate to the management of natural resources in the U.S. Arctic. Join us for a presentation and discussion of the report, which presents recommendations for advancing a common management approach that provides coordinated, forward-thinking solutions.

Goal & Format
ACCAP state-wide climate webinars are designed to promote dialogue between scientists and people in government, land and resource management, industry and individual residents who need information related to climate change in Alaska to make well informed decisions. Our goal is to create a forum for discussion and information exchange of the current state of knowledge about specific aspects of climate change in Alaska that is accessible to people state-wide and identifies existing information gaps and how best to fill them. Each webinar will start with 20-30 minutes of presentation followed by discussion and questions from participants.
