The Southwest Oregon Adaptation Partnership (SWOAP) is a science-management partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service (U.S. Forest Service)—Rogue River-Siskiyou and Umpqua National Forests, Pacific Northwest and Rocky Mountain Research Stations, and Pacific Northwest Region; U.S. Department of the Interior—Bureau of Land Management Medford and Roseburg Districts, and National Park Service Oregon Caves National Monument and Preserve; and University of Washington. This science-management partnership assessed the vulnerability of natural resources to climate change and developed adaptation options that minimize negative impacts of climate change and facilitate transition of ecosystems to a warmer climate. The vulnerability assessment focused on water resources, fisheries, vegetation, wildlife, recreation, and ecosystem services.
