Forest Adaptation Planning and Practices Online Training 2016

The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science and University partners are offering the Forest Adaptation Planning and Practices training as an online, six-week course! The first course's dates are January/February 2016, with future course offerings in the planning stages.

This unique opportunity provides hands-on training in considering climate change information and identifying adaptation actions for natural resources management and conservation. Participants will receive coaching and feedback on their own real-world climate adaptation project. The online Adaptation Workbook tool is featured, with special course features and additional materials.

Through this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify locally-important climate change impacts, challenges, and opportunities
  • Develop specific actions to adapt forests to changing conditions
  • Use the Adaptation Workbook to create their own “climate-informed” projects
  • Better communicate with stakeholders about key climate change impacts, challenges, and opportunities
  • Access post-training support from NIACS staff during project planning and implementation
