The Climate Change Executive Roundtable (ACCER) was established in 2007 as a forum for the Federal and State science agencies in Alaska to share information about climate change.
Comprised of senior level executives, the Roundtable meets regularly to share information and facilitate cooperation among agencies. Since its inception the organization has evolved from information sharing to planning and executing its own activities.
Most recently, participants identified shared information needs that lend themselves to multi-agency collaboration. Four work groups were identified to address needs for:
- Down-scaled climate data and physical parameter monitoring networks
- Sea level rise and physical hazard assessment
- Forecasting species and habitat changes
- Data integration and collaboration
