The Pacific County Marine Resources Committee serves as a steward for the marine and estuarine resources in Pacific County by facilitating science-based policies, research, and education that enhances the sustainability of the economy and ecology of the community.
The stakeholder committee includes representatives from commercial fishing, conservation, science, aquaculture, recreation, economics, ports, state, federal, local, and tribal government, and the community at large.
This meeting will include a workshop to review and comment on social indicators developed by Washington Sea Grant’s social science team.
Two basic goals for the workshops include:
- Present the assessment of human wellbeing in the 4 coastal counties, focusing on key domains (Social Connectedness, Economic Security, Basic Needs, Health, Access to Social Services, Education, Safety, Governance, and Environmental Condition);
- Get input on missing indicator priority areas (if any) for which there is existing data.
The workshop/meeting provides an opportunity for communities to identify social indicator data needs for future phases, which will be included in reports to the State.
