    Instructional Material Needs Assessment of Pacific Land Grant Institutions
    (Agricultural Development in the American Pacific Project, 1994-01) Harrington, Michael T.
    The primary objective of the Agriculture Instructional Materials Service (AIMS) is to coordinate the production, packaging for multiple uses, and distribution of targeted instructional materials for Pacific Land Grant institutions. The first issue confronting AIMS at the start of its plan of work was how to determine the instructional materials topics and subtopics of greatest need in the ADAP region. Second was the identification of detailed characteristics for these materials including; goals, learning outcomes, types of media, and end users of the product. The research reported here examines the regional responses from a two part methodology implemented to clarify these points.

    Summary Report for the Pacific Climate Scenarios and Impacts on Agriculture Meeting
    (Agricultural Development in the American Pacific Project, 2012) Zimmermann, Vanessa
    October 25 and 26, 2012, ADAP hosted a meeting of 47 agricultural professionals from Alaska, Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Micronesia, Marshall Islands, and Palau, and representatives from the Pacific Land Grant Alliance– a consortium of the Pacific Land Grant Schools. Day One of the workshop was devoted to technical presentations of ongoing climate-related extension or research projects. The diversity of the presentations highlighted the many ways that climate change can affect the Pacific region, from impacts on agriculture, plants, and insects, to water use, tourism, and the local economy. Day Two of the workshop was focused on change adaption, and was devoted to facilitated discussions of regional needs and areas for regional collaborative research/extension. During the discussions, we utilized a unique pictorial note taking method, to further spark ideas and innovative thought. This publication, Summary Report for the Pacific Climate Scenarios & Impacts on Agriculture Meeting, contains the meeting agenda, the final report of the ADAP Pilot study evaluating General Circulation Model (GCM) performance, meeting attendee list, notes from the facilitated discussions, and follow-up materials supplied by the newly formed, regional working group.

    Summary Report for the Pacific Childhood Obesity Stakeholder Meeting
    (Agricultural Development in the American Pacific Project, 2010) Troegner, Vanessa
    In 2008, the ADAP project adopted five focus areas to direct our efforts and resources: Climate Change, Food Security, Energy Security, Invasive Species and Biological Threats, and Health and Lifestyle Impacts. In our efforts to address both food security and health and lifestyle impacts, we planned the Childhood Obesity in the Pacific Region Project, of which a stakeholder meeting was the most prominent feature. The stakeholder meeting facilitated discussion on research and extension efforts across the Pacific region in the area of childhood obesity. Participants were expected to discuss the available data sources, research and extension efforts, and a balanced and broad-view analysis of their local and regional needs.
