CARM and Go: Bridging the gaps between natural resource management
and higher learning on Guam
with Dr. Romina King, PI-CASC Lead and Dept. of Geography, University of Guam
January 11, 2022, 12:00-1:00 pm (Hawaiʻi time)
Note: This will be a hybrid event with both zoom availability and a limited numbers of guests (≤15) attending in person (masked and vaccinated) at the Hawaiʻi Institute of Geophysics (HIG) building, room 210, on the UH Mānoa campus. If you are interested in attending in person, please email rlentz at hawaii.edu.
Natural resource management is an important component in climate adaptation. On Guam, PI-CASC has put together a unique fellowship program: a reverse model of the standard graduate research program to help those working in natural resource management to advance their education and professional development. PI-CASC University of Guam (UOG) lead Dr. Romina King will explain how the Climate Adaptation for Resource Management (CARM) program works with local agencies to build technical capacity by tapping into their employees’ work experience to create a research proposal and earn at higher degree at UOG.
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 Hawai’i, the US-Affiliated Pacific Islands, and beyond.
