Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) - RISA
The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) is part of NOAA's Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program, which supports climate research for decision-makers and policy planners at a regional level. Based in the University of Alaska - Fairbanks, ACCAP aims to assess the socio-economic and biophysical impacts of climate variability in Alaska, and make this information available to state and local decision-makers to improve the ability of Alaskan's to adapt to a changing climate. ACCAP's work encompasses the entire state of Alaska, focusing on coastal and living marine resources, applied climate downscaling, water availability, sea ice, wildfire, and community adaptation planning.
