Forest managers and landowners have a big role to play in preparing for continued climate change. The Climate Change Response Framework is a collaborative effort to help with this challenge and encourage climate-informed forest management. A major focus of this project is to build a network of adaptation demonstration projects, to provide real-world examples from a variety of ownerships and forest types.
This presentation will share
- the consistent approach that unites all of these demonstration projects
