Discussion and notes

LP DAAC is currently working with the MEaSUREs Global Food Security Area Database @ 30m team - w/ some provisional data to be available next year, and project completion in 2018. (from Stacie Bennett).

Has there been a recent ESIP on public engagement, particularly around unconventional energy development? Or even the broader topic of unconventional energy? Could even relate that back to climate... (from Denise Hills)

Give more info to meeting participants…e.g., Do a PRE meeting call on the State of the Federation, for new meeting participants…

Session leads doing a round-up. Some sentences on a poster, people can make comments, feedback potential… spread these around the hallways.

TO do list for session leads… on the wiki.

Remote participation issues remain. Audio is a problem in a lot of hotel conference rooms.

Goddard presentation at winter meeting… local ESIP can be given opportunity to have some greater presence.

State of the Federation talk for every meeting!

I'd like to see the theme broadened to Food Security in climate change conditions. For Alaska, this is not just about agriculture, but includes hunting, fishing, and gathering. There are several Native Alaskan leaders who would make great invited speakers. [Nettie Labelle-Hamer]
