The 2019 Adaptive Management Forum consisted of talks, panels, and breakout sessions to provide an opportunity for discussions around ecosystem restoration and adaptive management support in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta.


Each day began with a moderated panel and audience discussion, followed by case studies that highlight lessons learned. Afternoon breakout sessions on both days provided for more in-depth training and discussion opportunities on topics relevant to project proponents. Breakout sessions included such topics as writing adaptive management plans, developing monitoring plans with data management in mind, and considering uncertainties.


Coequal goals

The Delta Stewardship Council was created in legislation to achieve the state mandated coequal goals for the Delta. "'Coequal goals' means the two goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The coequal goals shall be achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place." (CA Water Code §85054)
