Local Environmental Observer Network
Operational Plan: 2015 - 2016
With climate change expected to impact both the environment and the health of regional populations, it is important that communities have the capacity to monitor, respond to, and adapt themselves to these challenges in a timely manner. The goal of this project is to introduce and expand the Local Environmental Observer (LEO) Network originating in Alaska to Canada and Mexico. The project will assist partners in identifying climate change–related impacts in the focus regions, along with enhancing dialogue on the value of local observations, the health and environmental effects of climate change, and strategies for mitigation and adaptation.
