Challenges and Opportunities Common to Large-Scale Adaptive Management Programs

CAMNet is dedicated to the advancement of practical applications of Adaptive Management and collaboration. One method CAMNet employs is to hold an interactive session that brings a diverse group of CAMNet members together with the leaders and stakeholders of a program actively applying Collaborative Adaptive Management. The interactive session provides an opportunity for the leaders and stakeholders of the local program to use CAMNet as a sounding board for their thoughts and application efforts. CAMNet members are able to learn from the local program and share their insights and experiences with the program leaders and stakeholders. The diversity of the CAMNet members will provide access to a broad and deep experience in applying Adaptive Management that is not easily assembled or conveyed in other forums. The session will be less focused on a specific outcome and more focused on producing healthy and useful dialog among the participants. The dialog will be primarily between the CAMNet members and the leaders and stakeholders of the local program, but will provide opportunities for interactions with the larger audience attending the session.

The number of participants will be limited to 60.
