The CA LCC has $400,000-$500,000 to support 2-4 collaborative place-based projects that lead to climate-smart conservation actions by natural resource managers. Place-based projects develop adaptation strategies and actions in a CA LCC ecoregion or landscape within an ecoregion that can be implemented by the partners.

This request for proposals aims to fill Objective 1 of the recently completed CA LCC Science-Management Framework. This Framework provides the strategic direction for the CA LCC.  Details in the Framework identify the process by which the CA LCC provides scientific support for natural resource managers to incorporate climate-smart conservation strategies into their management actions.

Additional work by the CA LCC in 2014 (not part of this RFP) includes Central Valley landscape conservation design, science-management workshops and training courses. Future years will focus on projects to assess and address climate change impacts on ecosystem processes at a landscape scale.
