The Alliance brings together jurisdictions across the globe to combat ocean acidification and changing ocean conditions as an immediate and critical threat to coastal economies and ocean ecosystems. The Alliance invites government and affiliate members at all stages of learning about and responding to ocean acidification.
The OA Alliance was established in response to impacts of ocean acidification on coastal communities and livelihoods. Together, we are:
The Gulf Coast Prairie Landscape Conservation Cooperative was established in 2011 and is based out of Lafayette, Louisiana. It is part of a network of 22 similar partnerships throughout the United States and our neighboring countries.
The Appalachian Landscape Conservation Cooperative is a science and management partnership to protect the valued resources and biological diversity of the Appalachian region, sustain the benefits provided by healthy and resilient ecosystems to human communities, and help natural systems adapt to large landscape-level stressors and those stressors that may be magnified by the changing climate.
The mission of the Great Plains Landscape Conservation Cooperative is to lead the development, facilitation and integration of science and management to ensure strategic natural resource conservation on the Great Plains.
The Plains and Prairie Potholes LCC is responsible for identifying and prioritizing the scientific uncertainties and needs that can inform better conservation management. Climate change, shifts in land-use, urban expansion, agricultural changes, are all contributing stressors impacting the plains and prairie potholes landscape. Research supported by the LCC is directed at maximizing habitat quality within key ecosystems from palustrine wetlands, native grasslands and restored grasslands to sage prairie and riparian habitat and river systems.
The Clyde Marine Planning Partnership (CMPP) is made up of more than 20 organisations and statutory bodies who have a stake in how the Clyde is managed. The membership reflects the range of interests around the Clyde from fisheries and aquaculture to tourism and recreation, business and industry to nature conservation and wildlife.
Citizens' Climate Lobby exists to create the political will for climate solutions by enabling individual breakthroughs in the exercise of personal and political power. CCL's carbon fee and dividend legislative proposal is explained at citizensclimatelobby.org.
Citizens’ Climate Education’s Mission is to educate the public, media, volunteers and members of Congress on climate change solutions. www.citizensclimateeducation.org A 501(c)3 non-profit.
The Southeast and Caribbean Climate Community of Practice (CoP) brings together individuals from local, state, and federal governments, academia, non-profit organizations and the private sector to apply climate science and assess how coastal communities and ecosystems can adapt to the impacts of climate variability and change. The CoP provides a forum for sharing lessons learned and best practices related to climate communication and adaptation.
Understanding Risk (UR) is an open and global community of 3,200 experts and practitioners interested and active in disaster risk assessment. Members represent more than 125 countries and include a range of sectors. The community convenes every two years at global forums, which provide organizations and individuals the opportunity to highlight new activities and initiatives, build new partnerships, and foster advances in the field of risk assessment.Understanding Risk 2014: Producing Actionable Information was held in London, UK.
