SeaTrust Institute is a scientific and educational nonprofit organization. Our project teams are actively working on environmental science and policy issues both locally and globally. Through working at both levels at the same time, SeaTrust Institute is in a position to provide grassroots knowledge and information to the international decision arena, provding a voice for local issues and knowledge within international policy processes.
At the international level, climate change and health are key focal issues for our work within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Local projects providing climate change and health adaptation assistance to regions with low adaptive capacity are a link to exchanging knowledge while bringing local voices into the larger conversation.
Coastal and marine science and policy issues, both in our home waters and abroad, are central to our research and educational programs.
