Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO)


PARTNERS:
USDA Forest Service Southern Region (Forest Planning, Forest Management, and Cooperative Forestry) and Western Wildland Environmental Threat Assessment Center

TACCIMO--Science at your FingertipsSUMMARY: EFETAC researchers are collaborating with forest managers and planners to develop the Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO), a web information interface intended to facilitate the integration of climate change science into land management planning. The overarching goal is to provide land and resource managers and planners with the best available science they need to effectively and efficiently sustain forests and the services they provide under a changing climate. Functionally, this means facilitating the review of current climate change forecasts, threats, management options and how they may impact forest management and planning.


STATUS: The TACCIMO Version 2.2 suite of tools is now available. In addition to continually expanding and enhancing TACCIMO, the TACCIMO development team is generating information to support Land and Resource Management Plan revision processes for El Yunque, Francis Marion, Nantahala-Pisgah, and Southern Sierra National Forests. The TACCIMO team is also partnering with the California Landscape Conservation Cooperative to develop a Vulnerability Assessment for the Sierra Nevada region.

The TACCIMO team seeks feedback to guide TACCIMO's future development. Visit the TACCIMO website for the latest news and updates.
