Adaptive management is a science-based, structured approach to improving our understanding of the problems and uncertainties of environmental and water management. The Delta Science Program provides science support to other agencies and organizations that are planning and implementing adaptive management. Our objective is to support science that will improve environmental decision making under uncertain conditions in the Delta.
The Delta Science Program:
- Provides early consultation to ecosystem restoration and water management projects for compliance with the Delta Plan Adaptive Management Framework,
- Convenes the Interagency Adaptive Management Integration Team to coordinate strategies and provide resources for adaptively managing conservation projects in the Delta,
- Organizes the Adaptive Management Forum to stimulate broad discussion in the Delta community around adaptive management support.
