I’m participating in a multiagency working group led by Federal Highways to develop a climate change adaptation tool. The tool will be based on best practices and will be piloted in two National Parks and two FWS Refuges. The schedule for the working group is :
- Development of a synthesis report of Federal Land Management Agency climate change efforts to date (April – July 2012)
- Testing best practices at the unit level with selected pilot Parks and Refuges in the SER (August – December 2012)
- Developing a SER climate change and transportation planning tool (October 2012 – April 2013)
We’ll have our first conference call at the end of April and I’m excited to see how this effort progresses. I’ll keep you posted as we move along the timeline.
