The Alaska Climate Change Executive Roundtable (ACCER or Roundtable), established jointly by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. Geological Survey in 2007, is comprised of both federal and non-federal senior level agency executives from throughout Alaska. The Roundtable is a voluntary alliance of Member agencies (Members), each with responsibilities and capacities for addressing climate change or its impacts on Alaska’s natural and cultural resources. Roundtable Agency programs variously involve research, management, regulatory and service-oriented activities, and are responsive to a variety of customers and constituencies. While there are differences in the programs, Roundtable Members agree that there are opportunities to exchange information, share best practices, leverage resources, and coordinate activities.
The Mission of the Roundtable is to promote a collaborative effort in advancing the knowledge of climate change variables to support each member’s responsibility for effective adaptation, mitigation, and management strategies.
