    Description

    The Intermountain Adaptation Partnership (IAP) is a science-management partnership with a wide variety of participants across the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service (USFS) Intermountain Region, which spans Nevada, Utah, southern Idaho, eastern California, and western Wyoming. This USFS region is the largest in the Nation, representing nearly 17 percent of all National Forest System lands. The partnership includes the USFS Intermountain Region and the USFS Pacific Northwest and Rocky Mountain Research Stations, National Park Service (NPS) Climate Change Response Program, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, North Central Climate Science Center, the Desert, Great Basin, Great Northern, and Southern Rockies Landscape Conservation Cooperatives, the University of Washington, Native American tribes, and dozens of other stakeholder organizations (fig. 1.1, box 1.1). Initiated in 2015, the IAP is a collaborative project with the goals of increasing climate change awareness, assessing vulnerability, and developing science-based adaptation options to reduce adverse effects of climate change and ease the transition to new climate states and conditions (see http:// adaptationpartners.org/iap). Developed in response to proactive climate change strategies of the USFS (USDA FS 2008, 2010a,b), and building on previous efforts in national forests (Halofsky and Peterson 2017; Halofsky et al. 2011, 2018, in press; Littell et al. 2012; Raymond et al. 2013, 2014; Rice et al. 2012; Swanston et al. 2011, 2016), the partnership brings together resource managers, research scientists, and stakeholders to plan for climate change in the Intermountain Region.
