Northwoods Partnerships

Climate change is an issue that crosses political boundaries and ownerships, so building an effective response to this challenge requires the collective knowledge, experience, and participation from diverse stakeholders in the forestry sector. The Northwoods Climate Change Response Framework includes a significant investment in building and creating partnerships among scientific and forest management communities. 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 scientific research is designed to help inform decisions.
  2. The Shared Landscapes Initiative - Partnerships with land managers across the Northwoods region facilitate climate change discussions, decisions, and actions across boundaries.
