The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) announces a webinar on the United States Arctic Research Commission (USARC) Working Groups. This webinar will be presented by Cheryl Rosa of the USARC.
The webinar will be available online or in-person at the Akasofu building, Room 407 on the University of Alaska campus.
A primary duty of the USARC is to interact with Arctic residents, international Arctic research programs and organizations, and local institutions including regional governments, in order to obtain the broadest possible view of Arctic research needs. To facilitate this, the USARC coordinates working groups to examine and develop research needs for specific topics, generally based on feedback from stakeholders.
USARC's Anchorage-based office currently coordinates three working groups: the Alaska Rural Water and Sanitation Working Group (ARWSWG), the Arctic Renewable Energy Working Group (AREWG) and the Arctic Mental Health Working Group (AMHWG).
This webinar will present an overview of the mission and objectives of the three USARC working groups, as well as ways to connect with their activities.
