Over the last year, a Northeast Climate Change Working Group was established to guide project efforts and provide regional exchange of current information and priorities to and from state fish and wildlife agencies. Monthly coordination with states provided NECASC (and other regional partner) updates to state fish and wildlife agency State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP) coordinators and members of the Northeast Fish and Wildlife Diversity Technical Committee (NEFWDTC). Information on their climate change needs was solicited monthly as we facilitated discussion on current state efforts and needs. Follow up with individual state staff provided more detailed information. Together with the results of the SWAP Synthesis (of the 14 State Wildlife Action Plans), as well as the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agency (AFWA) national survey, we continued to identify barriers and needs for climate change information in the northeast. We presented this information monthly, and at fall 2018 and 2019 spring annual meetings of Northeast Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (NEAFWA) conference and the NEFWDTC committee meeting in order to refine and summarize their needs.
