This webinar will feature a discussion on adaptive management, a learning-based approach to problem solving. The Interior Department recently published Adaptive Management: The U.S. Department of the Interior Applications Guide to provide federal, state, tribal and other natural resource managers with tools to more effectively address the complexities and uncertainties involved in natural resource management, especially under challenging conditions such as climate change. The Applications Guide includes case studies ranging from river flow management and protecting migratory birds to siting renewable energy projects. Ken Williams, Chief, Cooperative Research Units, USGS, will discuss the Applications Guide and explain how adaptive management can facilitate decision making and help resolve the uncertainties that hinder effective resource management.
