    Description

    The Northern Rockies Adaptation Partnership (NRAP) provided significant contributions to assist climate change response in national forests and national parks of the Northern Rockies region. The effort synthesized the best available scientific information to assess climate change vulnerability, develop adaptation options, and catalyze a collaboration of land management agencies and stakeholders seeking to address climate change in the region. The vulnerability assessment and corresponding adaptation options provided information to support national forests and national parks in implementing respective agency climate change strategies described in the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USFS) National Roadmap for Responding to Climate Change (USDA FS 2010a) and Climate Change Performance Scorecard (USDA FS 2010b) (see Chapter 1), and the National Park Service (NPS) Climate Change Response Strategy (NPS 2010). The NRAP process allowed all forests in the USFS Northern Region to respond with “yes” to scorecard questions in the organizational capacity, engagement, and adaptation dimensions. Further, the NRAP process enabled participating national parks to make progress toward implementing several components (communication, science, and adaptation goals) of the Climate Change Response Strategy (NPS 2010).
