In this presentation, Emma Yuen, from the Hawaiʻi Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) Division of Forestry and Wildlife, and Ryan Okano, from the DLNR Division of Aquatic Resources, will discuss the climate science that has been most relevant to natural resource management and funding decisions in their agencies. They will also address what types of additional information would be most helpful to managers of both marine and terrestrial ecosystems and landscapes.

Join us for this 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.
