This will ensure that our actions are based upon thorough, up-to-date understandings of how and why our resources are valued by many diverse groups, including Native Americans and other traditionally associated people, visitors, Policy memo 2 the scientific community.
However, both are stressed and the tracking of that trend provides critical information to both cultural and natural resource managers.
The guidance included in this policy memorandum should be integrated, as applicable, into all actions stemming from those documents. Guidance and tools to support them are being built in the Cultural Resource Climate Change Strategy, other documents in preparation, and through the continued collaboration and best practices of our parks, regions, and national programs.
We must improve our understanding of these additional impacts, address them in our stewardship practices, and be able to communicate them to the public.
Cultural Resources Decision-making in an Era of Climate Change Cultural resources have long been subject to environmental forces. Understand the Range of Climate Change Effects: Such information should be integrated into standardized reporting for both cultural and natural resources, such as State of the Parks reports.
Managers should consider choices such as documenting some resources and allowing them to fall into ruin rather than rebuilding after major storms. Effective adaptive management requires that our decision processes be nimble and flexible.
In light of the risks posed by climate change, we must revisit past decisions about museum facilities and collections. Evaluation of Siting of Museum Facilities and Collections: Additional guidance, in the form of a Cultural Resource Climate Change Strategy, will be forthcoming.
Every place has a climate story, many have more than one. Innovation for Emergent Threats: Cultural resources offer lessons in past human successes, and failures, in adapting to environmental changes, and provide insight into the origins of the modern climatic situation.
Such questions must now include how our modern climate situation has come about and how human societies have responded to climatic and environmental variability in the past. The National Register of Historic Places eligibility criteria provide a sound framework for assessing significance.
We must work with our partners to tap this information more fully and use it effectively in establishing baselines, assessing change, undertaking planning efforts, and setting management goals. Specific foci for adaptive research and management activities will include: The process of adaptation will not return us to the way things have been done before, but it will assist us in making choices in the face of uncertainty and change.
Impacts to cultural resources provide tangible examples of the effects of climate change at the human scale. National Register criteria challenge us to identify and manage not only our known and honored heritage, but also to understand how cultural resources can address questions about the past.State of Illinois Department of Transportation Division of Aeronautics POLICY MEMORANDUM April 1, Springfield, Illinois Number TO: CONTRACTORS.
