Adaptive Management Initiative Workshop

Taking Action on Climate Change Adaptation: A Workshop to Develop Shared Strategies for a Shared Landscape

March 19-20, 2014 Missoula, MT

The Wilderness Society (TWS), Crown of the Continent Conservation Initiative (CCCI) and the Crown Managers Partnership (CMP) created a workshop to explore the potential for coordinating effective climate change adaptation projects across the shared landscape of the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem. The objectives of the workshop were:

  • To identify explicit adaptation strategies to build resilience and facilitate change in the Crown of the Continents forests and watersheds;
  • To look at opportunities to coordinate strategies and foster execution at multiple scales to enhance learning and adaptive management;
  • To build capacity among managers and community stakeholders across our shared landscape to integrate climate-smart conservation and management into existing work;
  • To explore the potential to launch pilot learning projects in key landscapes in the Crown of the Continent.
