Department of the Interior (DOI): Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC)
The Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GBLCC) is one of 21 LCCs established by Secretarial Order No. 3289, which focus on on-the-ground strategic conservation efforts at the landscape level. LCCs are management-science partnerships that inform integrated resource-management actions addressing climate change and other stressors within and across landscapes, linking science and conservation delivery.
The mission of the GBLCC is to enhance understanding of the effects of changing climate and other natural and human impacts across the region and promote the coordination of science-based actions to enable human and natural communities to respond and adapt to those conditions. The current goals of the GBLCC are to provide leadership and a framework linking science and management to address shared ecological, climate, and social and economic issues across the basin; focus science and management actions to sustain natural resources in the context of changing environmental conditions; enhance collaboration to integrate science and management among Great Basin LCC partners particularly as related to climate change and other landscape-scale change agents; and to promote communication and education.
