Adaptive management is a science-based process that can help practitioners manage project uncertainties and reduce risk in the face of changing environmental, social, and political conditions. Using an adaptive management approach from the start of a project gives practitioners the flexibility to respond to unforeseen circumstances and keep moving forward.
See how NFWF grantees have applied adaptive management approaches in their projects:
- American Rivers—Increasing Community and Ecological Resilience by Removing a Patapsco River Fish Barrier
- California State Coastal Conservancy—Gravel Beach and Berm for Shorebird Habitat Creation, Erosion Control and Flood Protection
