New Report: Identifying Resource Manager Information Needs for the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative

Thursday, April 10, 2014

This report showcases results of an NPLCC-funded project and partnership with USGS to identify management information needs for two priority S-TEK Strategy topics: forests and forage fish. Two workshops were held with resource managers to address valued resources, services and goals and how climate change is anticipated to affect them. The workshops also addressed priority vulnerabilities, potential strategies and what information is needed to inform and employee management responses.

The final report details the conclusions of the workshops, listing priority management goals, tools, decisions, and information needs derived from the workshops.
