Ad Hoc Climate and Communities Core Team to Meet May 30-31, 2019 in Portland, OR

The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Pacific Council) Ad Hoc Climate and Communities Core Team  (CCCT) will hold a meeting, which is open to the public. The meeting will be held on Thursday, May 30 and Friday, May 31, 2019, from 9 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time until the completion of business on each day.


Purpose of the Meeting

The purpose of this meeting is for the CCCT to gain a full understanding of climate change scenario planning methodologies and begin developing a plan for a Pacific Council-focused scenario planning exercise as part of the Fishery Ecosystem Plan Climate and Communities Initiative. In March 2019 the Pacific Council formed the CCCT and assigned it specific planning tasks to report back on at the September 2019 Council meeting. These tasks are to refine the scenario topic used in the exercise, develop a detailed timeline for the scenario planning process (to be conducted between the September 2019 and March 2020 Pacific Council meetings), and identify participants in the scenario planning exercise. As necessary, the CCCT also may plan future meetings or webinars to complete this assignment.
