Climate change is an issue that crosses political boundaries and ownerships. It affects entire landscapes in ways that are not yet fully understood. Land managers and scientists often have different world views, which is both a strength and a challenge. A disconnect can exist between complex scientific products and the application of data to solve real-world problems. Fostering a dialogue between scientists and land managers helps scientists gain an understanding of what managers need to know, and also provides managers with an understanding of the scope of the current science. The Northern Forests Climate Hub and partners are committed to advancing knowledge, providing practical resources, and supporting land managers in making climate-informed decisions.
The Northern Forests Climate Hub coordinates with partners to build partnerships bridging the gap between scientific research and on-the-ground management responses to climate change impacts through close coordination with other USDA, federal, and state agencies along with university and private partners.
