HOW CAN DATA BE HELPFUL FOR BUILDING UNDERSTANDING, REDUCING RISK AND CONNECTING PEOPLE?
When data “sits on the shelf,” or we select strategies that are infeasible, have low-utility or high-risk, monitoring does not support producers with management decision-making, connect to one another, or collaborate effectively with agencies, tribes, landowner groups and other potential stewardship partners.
In this four-part webinar series, on February 17th & 24th and March 17th & 24th, speakers with on-the-ground experience and knowledge will share successes and lessons learned in resource monitoring, data management and interpretation, and in meeting objectives of multi-stakeholder efforts. Some of the questions that will be addressed, include:
- How do we choose what data to collect?
- What is the value of cooperative monitoring?
- How do we get started?
- What is the value of long-term data?
- How can we steward data for landowner and local community benefit?
Given historical instances of data misuse and misinterpretation, one focus will be on how to build trust around data with tribes and other rural, land and natural resource-dependent communities. Additionally, given the flurry of technological advances, some starting points to understand what is available and how to receive support will be shared.
Whether you are a landowner, ranch or farm manager, or work for an agency or organization, you will find value in this peer-to-peer learning opportunity ranging from big picture considerations to specific tools and approaches. Attend all four sessions or come to the ones you can. Free.
Co-hosted by the Quivira Coalition and Western Landowners Alliance.
