Central Appalachians Partnerships

Meeting the immense challenge of climate change requires collaboration among diverse partners dedicated to conservation and climate change response across the Central Appalachians landscape. These efforts foster partnerships and discussion on ecosystem management in the face of climate change. Partnership groups also provide input to the vulnerability assessments and adaptation tools, and help identify opportunities for climate change adaptation demonstration projects. Partnerships are centered on two themes:

  1. Science-management integration: Partnerships with scientists and managers from universities, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations help ensure the newest information is incorporated into decisionmaking and that research is designed to help inform decisions.
  2. The Shared Landscapes Initiative: Partnerships with land managers across the Central Appalachians region facilitate discussions, decisions, and actions across boundaries.
