How can organizations effectively come together to address climate change?

In support of the HITAI, this project will develop a thorough analysis of the current policies, mandates, institutional relationships and practices that affect decisions and actions by conservation entities in Hawaiʻi regarding climate change adaptation, and make recommendations for potential improvements.  The results of this analysis will help the member organizations of the PICCC to more efficiently implement climate change adaptation in conservation and thus achieve the goal of the HITAI. Conservation entities include members of the PICCC Steering Committee, including: the State of Hawai‘i Department of Land and Natural Resources, The Nature Conservancy of Hawai‘i, Kamehameha Schools, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, the National Park Service, the Trust for Public Lands, the Hawaiian Islands Land Trust, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
