Abstract

The Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO) is a Web-based tool developed by the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture to assist Federal, State, and private land managers and planners with evaluation of climate change science implications for sustainable natural resource management. TACCIMO is a dynamic information framework focused on assisting natural resource professionals with the integration of climate change into decision-support processes. A searchable repository of peer-reviewed climate change literature on effects and management options is accessible through a Web-based tool. A geospatial mapping application provides high-resolution climate data and other spatially explicit models relevant to evaluating climate change impacts on forests through modeling. Report generators assist users in capturing outputs specific to a given location and resource area in a consistent, organized manner. For Forest Service users, science findings can be readily linked with management conditions and capabilities from national forest land and resource management plans. Collectively, the TACCIMO tools provide a fast, concise, and creditable starting point to guide critical thinking, additional analysis, and expert consultation supportive of resource management decision making.
