NC ADAPT Work Group Releases Adaptive Management Recommendations

The NC ADAPT Work Group is a coalition of leaders from the agriculture and forestry sectors, along with partners from the business, academic, research and government communities.  The NC ADAPT Work Group’s initial mission was to explore the threats and impacts of increasingly extreme and erratic weather events and changing climatic conditions on North Carolina’s agriculture and forestry sectors to determine if these sectors are adequately prepared for what scientists are projecting.  The NC ADAPT Work Group concluded that weather variability is a threat to agriculture and forestry in North Carolina, preparation is needed, and the state would benefit from the development of a comprehensive adaptive management strategy.  The NC ADAPT Work Group’s findings and roadmap for constructing an adaptive management plan are outlined in the June 2015 report, Keeping North Carolina’s Farms and Forests Vibrant and Resilient: An Adaptive Management Planning Strategy.
