We propose to work with the Rocky Mountain Partnership Forum to expand upon the successful approach applied in the first two years of this project to help managers incorporate climate change science into their natural resource management decisions for a new resource of interest that will be chosen by the Rocky Mountain Partner Forum members. This project will be implemented through the Rocky Mountain Partner Forum to share information with and among partners about emerging climate science and strategies for integrating climate change into natural resource management decisions in the region. We will also support the Rocky Mountain Partner Forum Leadership Team as it seeks to formalize the Forum and set directions for future collaborative work.
Create a forum for organizational learning and sharing about integrating climate change into natural resource management decisions; Improve our collective understanding of the climate change vulnerabilities of widely valued natural resources in the GNLCC Provide managers with a menu of options for managing those resources as climate changes Identify priority science needs for making current and future natural resource management decisions as climate Collaboratively develop a 5-10 year adaptation action plan and associated monitoring plan for selected resources Identify emerging practices and strategies for climate adaptation implementation in the region, as well as opportunities for monitoring efficacy
FY2014This project focuses on incorporating existing and on-going climate science into management decisions for priority natural resources, and will result in the identification of science needs for considering the effects of climate change in management decisions. It will also help bring a large-scale perspective into climate adaptation efforts underway by RMPF partners, and facilitate climate adaptationimplementation (on-the-ground conservation delivery) through network learning and the involvement of diverse decision-makers.
The outcomes for this project are to:1. Link climate science to natural resource decisions2. Strengthen the GNLCC Rocky Mountain Partner Forum
