Research Projects

These projects develop adaptive capacity by training the next generation of manager and researchers (undergraduates, graduate students, and early career professionals) and by supporting existing local professional networks through manager-driven research projects that are directly linked to the 5 themes of the PI-CASC's 2018-2022 Science Agenda and the U.S. Department of Interior priorities outlined in the FY2018-2022 Strategic Plan. The PI-CASC Science Agenda themes are as follows:

  • Theme 1: Drought in the Pacific Islands
  • Theme 2: Coastal Adaptation & Planning
  • Theme 3: Forest Conservation in a Changing Environment
  • Theme 4: Core Questions for Resource Managers
  • Theme 5: Adaptation and Survival in Low Islands and Atolls
