JUST RELEASED: The National Academy of Sciences Review of the Landscape Conservation Cooperatives

Thursday, December 03, 2015

The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) released its Review of the Landscape Conservation Cooperatives today, which concludes that a landscape approach is needed to meet the nation’s conservation challenges and that the Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) provide a framework for addressing that need.

The North Pacific LCC thanks the NAS panel and staff for their careful review of the LCCs and extends our gratitude to the individuals from the greater conservation community who provided input.

The Academy's recommendations will further help each agency and organization engaged in our LCC and the LCC Network to take stock of progress to ensure that, collectively, the program is efficiently and effectively addressing landscape- and seascape-scale conservation priorities using the best science available.

The NPLCC appreciates the areas the review panel identified for further improvement to enhance coordination with partners around priorities and broaden the evaluation framework to better capture the contributions made by all partners and conservation outcomes at individual and LCC Network-wide scales.
