The Delta Science Program works directly with a number of federal, state, and local agencies that plan and implement ecosystem restoration, and also works with partner agencies and NGOs on the development of tools and frameworks to aid adaptive management.
Additionally, the Delta Science Program Adaptive Management Liaisons are available to consult with project proponents and provide advice on their adaptive management efforts.
Services of the adaptive management liaisons include:
- Provide advice on the availability of models, regional monitoring activities, and relevant research
- Help with integrating individual adaptive management projects, plans, and programs across the Delta system
- Provide consultation on use of best available science and adaptive management with respect to Delta Plan consistency
- Provide advice on potential active adaptive management experiments, including advice on potential funding avenues and on connections with other relevant research
