The Cascadia Partner Forum is intent on developing a regional climate adaptation strategy, in pursuit of our shared vision of “a region where our environment is resilient to the impacts of climate change, where residents with diverse life experiences and values understand the dynamic nature of the Cascadian landscape and are working together to conserve connected
networks of lands and waters, their diversity, natural functioning, and their ability to adapt, so that native fish, wildlife and people have flexible options far into the future.”

For such a broad-scale strategy to be effective, decision-makers involved in land use decisions across the landscape and at multiple scales must co-produce the climate adaptation strategy. The Cascadia Partner Forum hosted four workshops and a webinar in 2019 to engage potential partners in this co-production. This is what we heard from the 75 participants.

We will also host a status update webinar for the Cascadia Climate Adaptation Strategy: A collaborative plan for ensuring the resilience of our ecosystems on January 13, 2020 at 11am (PST). The webinar will have two parts. We will first summarize what we heard in our 2019 outreach efforts (including the workshops and webinar in the spring and summer) and our plans for the next quarter. We will then discuss what you’d like to hear in these quarterly webinar check-ins, and other ways you would like to stay engaged with the climate adaptation strategy process.
