Adaptation demonstration project examples

Adaptation demonstration projects are real-world examples of how managers have integrated climate considerations into land management planning and activities.

These projects used the Adaptation Workbook to test new ideas and actions for responding to changing conditions in real-world planning. Demonstrations come in all shapes and sizes, showing a variety of adaptation actions that also achieve natural resource management goals.
