Application of Adaptive Management to Address Climate Change Related Challenges
Offered by Collaborative Adaptive Management Network (CAMNet)

Instructors:
- Jennifer Pratt-Miles (Meridian Institute)
- Kris Esterson (PBS&J)
- Tom St. Clair (PBS&J)

Objective: In this workshop participants will explore the use of adaptive management (AM) to address different types of uncertainty associated with climate change and natural resource management and development of adaptation scenarios to address related challenges.

Background: AM has been proposed as a method that resource managers can use to identify and develop climate change adaptation scenarios. However, AM’s utility in addressing climate change issues is not yet fully understood – as there have been no specific applications to date. In this half-day workshop, participants will work in small groups on example climate change problems to learn the strengths and limits of AM to address these problems. Participants will learn to define “adaptive management” as distinct from “adaptation planning.” Participants will learn to identify the types of uncertainty associated with climate change and AM’s role in addressing these uncertainties. Application of AM across landscape scales and planning horizons relevant to rates of climate change will be explained. Participants will be introduced to other management approaches such as scenario-based planning, and learn how there relate to climate change adaptation planning and AM.

Workshop Benefits: At the conclusion of the workshop attendees will be able to discuss emerging trends in climate change adaptation policy and the role AM may play in addressing these issues. Participants will be given time to discuss the role AM could play in addressing the climate change issues of their home organizations and establish contacts with other AM practitioners. Participants will be provided a list of contacts that are available to provide assistance in the development and implementation of AM programs.

ADVANCE REGISTRATION REQUIRED: The number of participants will be limited to 24. Participants will be enrolled in the order in which their registration is received, but no later than June 18th.
