II ADAPTIVE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM OVERVIEW, A Adaptive Management Defined. Adaptive Management defined in 2009 Delta Reform Act California Water Code section. 85052 to mean a framework and flexible decision making process for ongoing knowledge. acquisition monitoring and evaluation leading to continuous improvements in management. planning and implementation of a project to achieve specified objectives. Adaptive Management at a basic level is a learning cycle and feedback loop whereby. resource managers may simultaneously manage and learn about a single or set of natural. resources AM is inherently collaborative requiring communication and transparency. among all interest groups as well as a willingness to overcome the institutional barriers to. collaborative decision making Luomaet al 2015, General framework for adaptive management developed as a structured decision making. process that incorporates uncertainty about the potential responses of resources to. management actions which then relies on flexible decision making that is adjusted as. outcomes from management actions and other events become better understood Holling. 1978 and Walters and Hillborn 1978, Adaptive management process requires defined management objectives and clearly identified. sources of ecological uncertainty that respectively become the basis for and barriers to a. desired resource management regime Williams 2010 Based on those objectives and the. identification of uncertainty resource managers develop hypotheses about the potential. resource responses to management actions and then manage the resource in a way that. incorporates explicit assumptions about those expected outcomes for comparison with actual. outcomes Williams et al 2009, DRAFT Adaptive Management Framework for the California Water Fix CWF and BiOps 5 26 16. Incrementally reduces uncertainty and management risks by improving understanding The. challenge then becomes how to use the flexibility provided by an adaptive management. approach in a way that balances gaining knowledge to improve management in the future and. achieving the best near term outcome Stankey and Allan 2009. B Adaptive Management Resource Needs, The key issue is whether existing efforts individually and collectively have enough capacity.
both in terms of staff capacity and senior researcher capacity and have stable funding to ensure a. long term scientific basis to support successful adaptive management decision making that is. relevant to project operations now and in the future. C Time Scale of Adaptive Management Program Implementation and Relationship of Adaptive. Management to Real Time Operations, Adaptive management of the SWP CVP will consider the multiple different time scales. applicable to CVP SWP actions Adaptive management changes to SWP CVP operations are. expected to be implemented on an annual or longer multi year basis. Under the current BiOps and future operations under CWF a real time operations RTO. mechanism will allow for adjustment of water operations within established conditions to. respond in real time to changing conditions for the purpose of maximizing opportunities to. benefit covered fish species The adaptive management and decision making processes. described here do not apply to these real time operations because individual decisions have. to be made too quickly However changing operational criteria in existing BiOps and CWF. authorizations through the adaptive management process may affect how real time operations. are implemented, D Adaptive Management Conceptual Model. The diagram below Figure 1 conceptualizes that different decisions are made at different time. scales of adaptive management for CWF and 2008 2009 BiOps on the combined CVP SWP. operations multi year or annual and real time daily or weekly The arrows indicate the. linkage between information flowing from real time operations to annual operations and that this. information may be used in the adaptive management process to make changes on annual or. multi year time scales The diagram also illustrates how different agencies and workgroups. interact with these different time scales and the dependencies between them.

DRAFT Adaptive Management Framework for the California Water Fix CWF and BiOps 5 26 16. III CURRENT EFFORTS, Important efforts are underway to implement science based adaptive management to improve. scientific basis of operational decisions on annual or multi year time scales The Adaptive. Management Program will build on and augment the existing and planned efforts summarized. below that are developing and implementing science to apply adaptive management principles to. the Delta ecosystem As the Adaptive Management Program is developed specific linkage to. each of these efforts will be defined, A Delta Stewardship Council Delta Independent Science Board DISB and Delta Science. Program DSP, Established by 2009 Delta Reform Act the Delta Stewardship Council is charged with.
achieving the co equal goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and. protecting restoring and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The DISB provides a standing board of nationally or internationally prominent scientists. with appropriate expertise to evaluate the broad range of scientific programs that support. adaptive management of the Delta The DISB will provide oversight of the scientific. research monitoring and assessment programs that support adaptive management of the. Delta through periodic reviews of each of those programs and reports to the Delta. Stewardship Council, The Delta Independent Science Board DISB in January 2016 provided insights. regarding the way adaptive management has been applied to the Delta ecosystem as well. as a number of recommendations for future implementation in their report titled. Improving Adaptive Management in the Sacramento San Joaquin Delta Key findings. and recommendations included, o Agencies must become more actively engaged in collaborations. o Adaptive Management must be identified as a high Priority. o Support Adaptive Management with dependable and flexible funding. o Design and support monitoring to fit the magnitude of management actions and. timing of ecosystem processes, o Develop a framework for setting decision points or thresholds that would trigger a. management response, o Use restoration sites to test adaptive management and monitoring protocols. The Delta Science Program s mission is to provide the best possible unbiased scientific. information to inform water and environmental decision making in the Bay Delta region. The Delta Science Program s objectives are, o Initiate evaluate and fund research that will fill critical gaps in the understanding.
of the current and changing Bay Delta system, o Facilitate analysis and synthesis of scientific information across disciplines. o Promote and provide independent scientific peer review of processes plans. programs and products, o Coordinate with agencies to promote science based adaptive management. o Interpret and communicate scientific information to policy and decision makers. scientists and the public, o Foster activities that build the community of Delta science. DRAFT Adaptive Management Framework for the California Water Fix CWF and BiOps 5 26 16. The Delta Science Program has particular expertise and experience organizing and. facilitating independent scientific reviews It also has primary responsibility for. developing and implementing the Delta Science Plan The Delta Science Program is. expected to support CWF in the review of monitoring and research methods and results. and to provide technical support to the adaptive management process. B CSAMP CAMT, Established in 2013 during federal litigation of 2008 2009 BiOps In 2015 after litigation. ended parties agreed to continue the Collaborative Science and Adaptive Management. Program CSAMP process to promote the collaborative development of scientific. information to inform sound decision making in the future. CSAMP is intended to be a robust science and adaptive management collaboration of. managers scientists and experts from the Five Agencies Public Water Agencies. PWAs and the NGO community with the intent to inform the management actions. consistent with the existing BiOps and Reasonable and Prudent Alternatives RPA s. and consideration of alterative management actions. CSAMP Organization four tiers, 1 Policy Group consisting of agency directors and top level executives from the.
entities that participate in CSAMP, 2 The Collaborative Adaptive Management Team CAMT made up of managers. and staff scientists that serve at the direction of the Policy Group. 3 Scoping Teams created on an as needed basis to scope specific science studies. 4 Investigators contracted to conduct studies, CSAMP Mission Statement 7 23 2013. The Collaborative Adaptive Management Team CAMT will work with a. sense of urgency to develop a robust science and adaptive management. program that will inform both the implementation of the current Biological. Opinions including interim operations and the development of revised. Biological Opinions, CSAMP Current Status, Develop a Five Year Plan for CAMT. Focus on completing studies initiated in 2014 and identifying new initiatives. based on the results of these studies, Scoping teams and principle investigators developing analysis and synthesis. concerning Delta Smelt Entrainment Gear Efficiency Fall Habitat and. Salmonid survival Reports will identify key findings issues and. recommendations for next steps, CAMT will evaluate and prioritize recommended next steps and submit high.
priority efforts to CSAMP Policy Team to incorporate into 5 year plan. Items in CAMT 5 year plan may also support and contribute to advancing the. objectives of other efforts to include CWF and Interagency Ecological. Program IEP The Five Agency group will need to ensure that efforts being.
