Gulf Spill Restoration
Trustees Approve and Release the First Manual for Monitoring and Adaptive Management
In the Programmatic Restoration Plan, the Trustees committed to develop a set of guidelines for monitoring and adaptive management practices that support implementation and evaluation of restoration projects.
The Trustee Council has approved the Monitoring and Adaptive Management (MAM) Manual Version 1.0 (pdf), which contains these guidelines. The MAM Manual will serve as guidance for the Trustee Implementation Groups. It was written by the Cross-TIG Monitoring and Adaptive Management work group, which includes representatives of each of the Trustees.
