The Climate Smart Land Network (CSLN) is an alliance of rural landowners and land managers that are working together to respond to the challenges posed by climate change. The program is structured to assist Network members in identifying and implementing pragmatic on-the-ground solutions that both meet their management goals and increase natural system resiliency to climate change.
The Climate Smart Land Network bridges the gap between climate science and on-the-ground application. The Network already contains over 6 million acres of managed forest. The goal is to enroll 30 million acres in the program over the first four years. The CSLN provides a simple and direct method of including climate change concerns in your management planning and demonstrating that your organization is proactively engaged in seeking climate solutions.
