BIBI3.1: Facilitate increased use or performance of best management practices in working/rural lands
Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Approach - Facilitate the increased use or performance of best management practices in working/rural lands.
Desired Outcome - Reduce the impact of runoff from working lands.
Policy Needs - N/A
- Establish enabling conditions (build vision and trust).
- Identify the best-suited sites and BMPs.
- Provide technical assistance.
- Develop economic incentives/remove barriers.
- Provide education and outreach so that rural landowners don’t feel as burdened and recognize the benefits that accrue to them of using BMPs. Use the following barrier reduction/increase motivators:
- Percent participation, reach-scale incentive payments
- Advocate for alternative agricultural approaches that are less environmentally problematic (such as working buffers).
- Community is important.
- Share the burden of achieving environmental benefits.
- Working lands can include forestry.
- Identify multi-benefit approaches.
- Supporting BMPs that are resilient to climate change and achieve other co-benefits would attain diversity of beneficial outcomes.
Local Context - Local context provides additional specificity on how a Regional Priority approach should be implemented in each local area; examples include sequencing, partners to consider, and critical areas. Local context for this Regional Priority approach is available here.
