Local Integrating Organization (LIO) Overview
The South Central Action Area Caucus Group is the Local Integrating Organization (LIO) for Puget Sound recovery in the Central Puget Sound region and is responsible for integrating efforts to advance the Action Agenda of the Puget Sound Partnership (PSP).
The LIOs enable communities to guide the implementation of Action Agenda priorities at an ecosystem scale, and to prioritize local actions for investment. The South Central LIO was officially recognized by the PSP’s Leadership Council in June 2010. It was formed under the leadership of King County to advise the Ecosystem Coordination Board (ECB) representative for this area, as well as to build on and support the work of existing groups and improve Action Area communication, coordination, and integration across these different efforts.
The South Central LIO is comprised of several local governments; tribes; non-profit organizations; watershed, marine resource, and salmon recovery groups; interest groups; businesses; educational organizations; and citizens. The members collaborate to develop and coordinate local efforts that advance the implementation of Action Agenda priorities.
