Slice of PI-CASC Seminar Series: April

Event Type: Online
Start Date:
End Date:
Location: Zoom & University of Hawaii Mānoa, Hawaiʻi Institute of Geophysics building, room 210
Topic: Pacific RISCC & Micronesian Regional Biosecurity Perspectives

Communities across the Pacific are threatened by the individual and interacting impacts of invasive species and climate change, with implications for biodiversity, food and water security, trade, livelihoods, and cultural practices. The Pacific Regional Invasive Species and Climate Change (Pacific RISCC) management network is a multi-partner collaboration across Hawaiʻi and the U.S. Affiliated Pacific Islands formed in 2020 to address these combined and interacting threats. Dr. Elliott Parsons will talk about the efforts of the national and regional RISCC networks and our developing understanding of the science at this nexus in the Pacific, and Dr. Glenn Dulla will discuss Micronesian biosecurity perspectives and the growing risk of invasive species transport between islands in the region.

Join us for the next seminar of the “Slice of PI-CASC” seminar series hosted by the Pacific Islands Climate Adaptation Science Center! The series is designed for a wide audience to learn about climate adaptation research and science-to-management applications for Hawaiʻi, the US-Affiliated Pacific Islands, and beyond.
