On-the-Ground Adaptation

The On-the-Ground Adaptation Roundtable

This roundtable is focused on developing case study examples of on-the-ground fire and climate adaptation projects that are being implemented by practitioners. These case studies describe the project goals, team members, successes and challenges, and lessons learned. To develop these case studies, the roundtable has partnered with the Collaborative Conservation and Adaptation Strategy Toolbox. The group has also convened workshops (both virtual and in-person) to network with practitioners and learn what information they find to be most useful for their work.

Adaptive Silviculture Case Study

In collaboration with the Collaborative Conservation and Adaptation Strategy Toolbox (CCAST) Team, the SWFireCAP highlighted its first case study on the Adaptive Silviculture for Climate Change Project in the San Juan National Forest, providing an example of a co-developed project aimed at helping forests resist, be resilient to, or transition to meet the impacts of projected future climate conditions in fire-adapted ecosystems.
