Western Threat Center Highlights
Climate Change Planning Tool Goes West
Originally developed in partnership with national forest planners and managers in the southern United States, the Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO) has expanded to support resource planning and management for a wide range of issues and locales. The Eastern and Western Threat Center have collaborated to further the TACCIMO tool’s expansion with the inclusion of peer-reviewed climate change science specific to the Forest Service’s western regions. Climate change science from newly published literature will be continuously added to the TACCIMO database as will information on focal resources of interest in each western region to help planners and managers effectively and efficiently sustain forest resources in a changing climate.
For assistance with TACCIMO in the West or for more information about climate change effects for specific focal resources, contact Western Threat Center technical information specialist Lisa Balduman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
