Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Approach - Gain a better understanding of future social, economic, and political factors (such as population growth) that will affect habitat.
Desired Outcome - Improved understanding of areas under pressure for conversion, areas suitable for development, and human needs enables improved planning for population growth.
Policy Needs - N/A
- Identify areas suitable for more compact development and develop subarea plans within Urban Growth Areas.
- Develop decision support tools to understand drivers of past, present and future land-use change.
- Develop ecosystem services metrics and values which connect ecological functions to human well-being.
- Describe the datasets and protocols that will be used.
- Describe how you will coordinate with partners conducting ongoing work (such as Department of Commerce). Consider partnerships that bundle data analysis with an application or implementation effort. Describe how you will consider environmental justice, transportation, and housing affordability implications in the project.
- Describe who the intended users of the final product will be and how they will engage in the project.
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.
