The DLN Sharing Management Practices team has worked with the Collaborative Conservation and Adaptation Strategy Toolbox (CCAST) to develop and disseminate several case studies. The CCAST is a multi-organizational partnership directed by the Bureau of Reclamation and US Fish and Wildlife Service that cooperates with over 150 individuals from dozens of organizations to increase and improve communication; develop tools to support landscape conservation, restoration, and drought resilience; inform management decision-making; and develop actionable science. Case studies are write-ups of work completed to manage, conserve, restore, or conduct actionable science on natural resources. These case study narratives focus on methods and lessons learned that can inform future projects. Case Studies provide an opportunity to highlight the work of professionals, especially work that is not published in literature.
