On Nov. 10, 2015 the Landscape Conservation Cooperative Network released its Conservation Science Plan. The plan is organized around seven key themes: (1) Landscape Conservation Planning; (2) Landscape Conservation Design; (3) Climate Adaptation; (4) Data Management, Integration, and Sharing; (5) Socioeconomic and Cultural Values; (6) Science Communication and Delivery; and (7) Monitoring and Assessment.
The Network-level themes are intended to add value to individual LCC efforts and to provide mechanisms for aligning LCC efforts across multiple spatial scales without obligating individual LCCs or their partners to prescriptive actions.
Over the course of the next few months, the LCC Network Science Team will develop an implementation strategy for making measurable progress on achieving the objectives outlined in the Conservation Science Plan and then we will work with partners to make it happen. We hope that you will join us as the LCC Network takes these exciting steps.
Ben Thatcher (Assistant National LCC Coordinator) and members of the Science Coordinators Leadership Team will host an informational webinar about the Conservation Science Plan on November 19 at 3PM Eastern.
