Created: 10/30/2013 -

Abstract

This report summarizes the processes and outcome of a scenario planning workshop held in November 2007 at Joshua Tree National Park. It was produced by the National Park Service (NPS) in collaboration with the National Center for Landscape Fire Analysis (NCLFA) at the University of Montana. Most of the content in the report was written by NCLFA staff, which organized and facilitated the pre-workshop exercises as well as the workshop itself. The workshop was conducted for the NPS using a task agreement through the Rocky Mountain Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit at the University of Montana. Funding was provided by the National Park Service Division of Fire and Aviation Management. The report reflects the major elements of the processes leading up to the workshop and the workshop results. It is intended to provide guidance on scenario planning with particular applications to resource management and to inform the development of scenario planning as tool for adaptation planning in the NPS.
