Adaptation Design Tool for Natural Resource Management – Minnesota, 2017
The Reef Resilience Network partnered with NOAA and EPA to host a 1.5 hour training on Adaptation Design Tool for Natural Resource Management at the National Adaptation Forum on May 11, 2017. The training session provided an interactive introduction to the Adaptation Design Tool that walks practitioners through steps for adjusting the design of their management activities to be more climate-smart. Participants got a brief ‘how to’ on the tool, along with an illustrative case study presentation, and hands-on work to apply adaptation design to example management activities for Puerto Rican coral reefs. A more extensive version of the Adaptation Design Tool will be launched this summer in the form of an online course and instructor-led training as part of the Reef Resilience Toolkit.
