Management Plans that Incorporate Climate Change

A variety of Adaptation Demonstrations have been developed to show how climate change considerations can be considered as part of land management activities. The following list provides some examples of projects that have included climate change as a component in a written forest management or forest stewardship plan. Copies of the plans are available as links at the bottom of each page. This template text can be used to start a climate change section within your own management plans.
