Conservation Agreement Committes and their Purpose

Stalks

Organizational and Adaptive Management Framework for implementation of the Conservation Agreement.

  • Policy Committee

    Elk

    Role: The PC is responsible for communicating priorities for lamprey conservation and information about funding sources and cycles to the CT. Members receive priority action and research proposals from the CT and work with them to promote high priority actions to funding agencies. The PC communicates and coordinates efforts with other entities (e.g., National Fish Habitat Action Plan (NFHAP) partnerships, agencies, etc.).

    Past Meetings

  • Conservation Team

    Elk

    Role: The CT reviews regional implementation plans and priority proposals from RMU Groups. They work with RMU Groups to ensure consistency, where possible, on RIPs. They communicate conservation progress, gaps and proposed actions to the PC. The CT assigns technical questions to the Lamprey Technical Workgroup. They coordinate Assessment updates and revisions. The CT works with RMU Groups to ensure updates to the Pacific Lamprey data clearinghouse occur as new data becomes available.

    Past Meetings

  • Lamprey Technical Workgroup

    Elk

    Role: The LTWG acts as an advisory group to the CT. It receives technical questions from the CT and is assigned special topic questions such as monitoring and research guidance and assessing climate change impacts. The chairperson of the LTWG reports LTWG activities to the CT bi-annually. The LTWG provides the RMU Groups with technical support as requested. The LTWG reviews products such as Regional Implementation Plans, conservation strategies, proposals, and assessment approaches. The LTWG is encouraged to look at regional issues and identify practical solutions for evaluation and implementation. Subgroups within the LTWG will work on specific topics (e.g., dredging, passage metrics) and/or geography (Regional Management Units) when necessary to evaluate an issue.

    Past Meetings
  • Regional Management Unit Groups

    Elk

    Role: The RMU Groups support the Conservation Agreement by annually providing Regional Implementation Plans (RIPs) including threats, prioritized actions and research monitoring and evaluation (RM&E), and identified implementing agencies and funding sources) to the CT. They annually develop proposals for high priority actions and research and submit the proposals to the CT. Each of the RMU Groups will develop and maintain an infrastructure to provide updated implementation tables, GIS products, and associated narratives as available resources permit. The USFWS provides to the extent possible technical support and the LTWG provides guidance to the RMU Groups upon request by CT.
