Sustainable Recreation and Tourism Initiative


Welcome to "Climate Adaptation & Resilience"

Project Description: “Climate Adaptation and Resilience Assessment” is the official name of Track 2 of the “Sustainable Recreation and Tourism Initiative”. This track will produce a report developed through the “lens” of sustainable recreation documenting the value of natural-resource capital in the Eastern Sierra and the region’s outdoor recreation economy. Also included will be a targeted messaging program to ensure meaningful and efficient distribution of the report’s findings. MLTPA is pleased to provide this web page in support of the Eastern Sierra Sustainable Recreation Partnership (ESSRP) and the "Sustainable Recreation and Tourism Initiative."
