Landscape-Scale Mitigation

Thursday, October 23, 2014: 10:20 AM-11:50 AM
Ampitheater (Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center)
Landscape mitigation including resilience to climate and other landscape stressors is becoming an important topic at the federal level.  A Department of Interior Secretarial Order was issued in October of 2013 and a subsequent Strategy released outlining priorities for the Department in this realm.  Numerous states and other organizations are already developing tools and processes and implementing landscape mitigation.  This session will provide an overview of the priorities of the Department of Interior Mitigation Strategy.  Case studies will be presented from several states.  The presentations will be followed by a panel session to explore additional ways landscape mitigation can be developed and how it can assist with climate resilience.
