Regional Frameworks

A central recommendation of the state’s Forest Carbon Plan and the National Forest Planning Rule is to build and maintain regional approaches to improve the health and resilience of forested landscapes. The benefits of a regional approach include alignment of state and federal goals and mandates at a regional level, facilitating multi-benefit and multi-jurisdictional projects, and empowering local governments and collaboratives to set priorities and integrate forest resilience and sustainable development programs.
