The United States Forest Service’s (USFS) Climate Change Resource Center (CCRC) is a collection of forest management resources. It includes an extensive library, climate change and carbon tools, and introductory webinar for new users. The CCRC began in 2008 as a regional Forest Service effort in the western US with the mission to “connect land managers and decision makers with useable science to address climate change in planning and application” by providing land managers with the information and tools necessary to respond to effectively climate change. The CCRC has since expanded to become a nationwide resource for forest and grassland managers.
The USFS' Climate Change Response Framework, included in the tool library, may be especially relevant to land managers working on cross-boundary forest management issues.
