FP3.4: Collect and analyze data to adaptively manage floodplain recovery practices
Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Approach - Collect and analyze data to adaptively manage recovery practices.
Desired Outcome - Monitoring of the multi-benefit outcomes of floodplain protection and restoration leads to improved long-term stewardship and adaptive management of plans and practices to produce better ecosystem and human outcomes.
Policy Needs - N/A
- Evaluate habitat response and restoration outcomes to specific design approaches to improve critical design decisions and cost assessments for levee removal.
- Communicate effectiveness data and success stories and learning from plan implementation.
- Monitor and evaluate effectiveness of solutions identified and implemented from plans.
- Describe how ecological, economic, and social outcome metrics will be developed and measured. Consider using the Commerce Critical Areas Assistance Handbook for guidance, Floodplains by Design regional metrics for communication, and restoration adaptive management metrics similar to other efforts, such as the Fisher Slough monitoring methodology (PRISM #13-1524).
- Describe how monitoring will evaluate effectiveness at the site and landscape scale. Consider partnerships that will ensure long-term continuity of monitoring.
- Describe how data will be used to modify management decisions and design approaches. Consider partnerships that engage end-users throughout the study.
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.
