Performance Scorecard for Implementing the Forest Service (USFS) Climate Change Strategy
This performance scorecard was developed to ensure compliance with the overall U.S. Forest Service Climate Change Strategy recommendations by 2015. While the scorecard is delivered and completed annually at the individual/localized national forest level, many of the items require regional and national support and guidance in order to achieve compliance. The scorecard uses the following four categories to track performance: Organizational Capacity; Partnerships, Engagement and Education; Adaptation; and Mitigation measures.
Three adaptation measures are included in the scorecard: utilizing vulnerability assessment information in decision making (from regional or forest level); setting priorities and taking land treatment actions based on an adaptation strategy being in place; and monitoring to track changing conditions of species, watershed condition, forest and grassland health, and other measures.
