Adapting Watersheds To Ecosystem And Climate Stressors

The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science (NIACS) is launching a new intiative that will build on the success of the Forest Adaptation Resources and associated Adaptation Workbook that have been developed for natural resource professionals in the Midwest and Northeast. This new effort will develop tools and resources related to managing water resources in forested landscapes. It will draw upon the existing toolkit to create a new, water-focused “menu” of climate adaptation strategies and approaches that can be used as part of a structured decision-making process.

This two-page document summarizes this new effort.
