A Three-Step Decision Support Framework for Taking Climate Adaptation Actions

Date: January 10, 2017
Presenter(s): Molly Cross
Description: We will present a framework for using available climate science to set forward-looking conservation goals and select among a menu of climate adaptation strategies. This decision support framework is designed to catalyze adaptation actions by bridging recent advances in climate science and adaptation planning, while also helping managers document and defend how climate change information was incorporated into their management decisions. The authors worked with U.S. Forest Service managers at the Custer Gallatin National Forest to tailor the framework for decisions about native salmonid conservation. The framework is intended to be a 'living document' that can be continually improved as it gets tested and used. It also offers an approach to incorporating climate change into conservation decisions that can be applied to other species or ecosystem targets of concern.
