This project will use two previously developed scenario planning processes, Adaptation for Conservation Targets (ACT) & Strategic Scenario Planning (SSP), and integrate them into a series of webinars and a workshop to answer the following questions:
The SSP method was developed for comprehensive, executive level applications, where decisions can be made and implemented with 'top-down' direction. ACT was developed for highly scoped field-level management questions, pertaining to a single conservation target or landscape process (e.g., fire), and has generally focused on near-term actions that have implications for projected mid-century management. This project will evaluate the potential of combining the two processes to result in a process that is comprehensive and spurs thinking about divergent futures (SSP), and can identif clear pathways to field-level actions (ACT) within a comprehensive, widely-scoped framework.
Potential Project Participants:
Bi-State Sage-grouse Working Group . BLM Field Managers, Central Great Basin USFS District Managers
