Adapting to a Changing Climate: Risks & Opportunities for the Upper Delaware River Region
In 2012, the Model Forest Policy Program (MFPP), the Cumberland River Compact, Headwaters Economics, the Common Waters Partnership and the Pinchot Institute for Conservation came together to create a climate adaptation plan for the communities of the Upper Delaware River Region. Development of the plan came about because all parties, led by MFPP, recognized the critical need for local community resilience against the impacts of climate change by protecting forest and water resources. This climate adaptation plan for the Upper Delaware Region of southeastern New York, northeastern Pennsylvania and northwestern New Jersey presents the results of a community team effort, deep and broad information gathering, critical analysis and thoughtful planning. The result of this collaborative effort is a powerful climate adaptation plan that the community can support and implement in coming years. The outcome will be a community that can better withstand impacts of climate upon their natural resources, economy and social structure in the decades to come.

Feasibility of Quantifying Returns from Forest Service Research and Development Programs
Acres managed, miles of riparian habitat restored, gallons of fresh water provided, populations of wildlife conserved – all are important metrics of natural resources management and will continue to be important measures defining programmatic impact. However, it is becoming increasingly necessary, during constrained budgetary times, staffing declines, and demands for science increasing to understand and communicate the value of research and development if a case is to be made to retain (or even expand) research and development budgets.

Forest Carbon Conservation and Management: Integration with Sustainable Forest Management for Multiple Resource Values and Ecosystem Services

Abstract. Forest carbon management is an important consideration in temperate forests as well as tropical and boreal forest biomes. It is estimated that US forests absorb 10-20 percent of total US carbon dioxide emissions, or more than 200 Tg C yr-1. Recent research suggests that this net carbon sink is likely to decline over the next few decades, and that US forests could become a net carbon source unless decisive action is taken in the near term to alter this trajectory. This paper will summarize ongoing research to determine how carbon management can be made compatible with existing sustainable forest management programs, and how it may be possible to maintain or enhance the forest carbon sink through targeted management policies. Examples are drawn from private forests managed primarily for timber and other economic values, and from public forests in which management for specific forest uses, values, and services are mandated by law or policy.
