Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperativelast updated: November 2012
The Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) is one of 22 LCCs nationwide established by the Department of the Interior (DOI) to better integrate science and management to address climate change and related issues. The Great Basin LCC is a self-directed partnership between bureaus and others involved in natural resource management and conservation.

What does the Great Basin LCC do?
In broad terms, the Great Basin LCC will help link and integrate science information providers with resource managers and science users; bring additional DOI resources to bear on landscape-scale conservation issues and opportunities; and help to apply science and facilitate coordination on a wide range of efforts to respond to climate change, invasive species, wildfires, human development and other stressors across the Great Basin. Specific objectives and shared priorities will be determined by the partnership itself. The LCC is not intended to replace existing organizations already accomplishing conservation work in the Great Basin. The aim is to facilitate, enhance and inform that work.

The Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative enhances understanding of the effects of changing climate and other natural and human impacts across the region and promotes the coordination of science-based actions to enable human and natural communities to respond and adapt to those conditions.

Provide leadership and a framework linking science and management to address shared ecological, climate, and social and economic issues across the basin.
Focus science and management actions to sustain natural resources in the context of changing environmental conditions.
Enhance collaboration to integrate science and management among Great Basin LCC partners particularly as related to climate change and other landscape-scale change agents.
Promote communication and education.
