Forest and Water Resource Resiliency Framework

Recognizing that Tehama County had yet to comprehensively address the effects of a changing climate on water and forest resources in relation to economic, social, and environmental vulnerabilities, the RCD facilitated the development of the Forest and Water Resource Resiliency Framework. A stakeholder team representing various sectors and resource managers contributed to the framework to improve land management in order to safeguard natural assets, including hydrologic and ecosystem processes. The framework serves as a reference and as a living guide for interagency decision makers to gain community support for the implementation of solutions. The findings of the framework were presented to the Tehama County Board of Supervisors in August of 2015.
