Exploring SLR with RAD: Practical Solutions to Overwhelming Problems

PLACE: SLR offers trainings to natural resource managers who work on managed lands to help them move through the overwhelming process of addressing sea-level rise to actionable decision making using the structured RAD framework.

What is RAD?

RAD is a framework developed by representatives of several agencies across the US Department of the Interior to help resource managers determine actions in a structured way.

RAD stands for:

Resist change to maintain a historical or current condition.

Accept change without any significant management response.

Direct change by managing for a new, desirable condition.

The RAD framework helps resource managers to work through the factors that go into making a management decision as well as the results of those decisions to determine the best course of action for dealing with environmental change.
