The Ad Hoc Climate and Communities Core Team met on Thursday, May 30 and Friday, May 31, 2019 in Portland, Oregon (see agenda).

The specific tasks addressed during this meeting were:

  • Refine the scenario topic used in the exercise
  • Develop a timeline for the scenario planning process (to be conducted between the September 2019 and March 2020 Pacific Council meetings)
  • Identify participants in the exercise.
  • Plan future meetings or webinars if necessary.
