THE VIRGINIA CONSERVATION LANDS NEEDS ASSESSMENT: VIRGINIA NATURAL HERITAGE PROGRAM'S GIS TOOLS FOR MULTI-SCALE CONSERVATION PLANNING

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

One thing is clear for Virginia: inevitable population growth will collapse our ecological support systems, further degrade environmental health and permanently damage our natural resources, unless Conservation Planning becomes socially and economically fundamental. The Virginia Conservation Lands Needs Assessment (VCLNA), recently completed by the Virginia Natural Heritage Program, provides a GIS model-based toolset to streamline the Conservation Planning process for decision makers at multiple levels. Guided by Virginia’s Green Infrastructure Advisory Workgroup, the VCLNA is a suite of seven statewide GIS models: Ecological Integrity, Cultural Assets, Recreational, Forest Economics, Agricultural, Watershed Integrity and Vulnerability, or threat of land consumption by development. These models provide quantitative spatial data summaries of these Green Infrastructure assets and a tool to analyze how they may fare in the coming years. The VCLNA was developed with versatility to provide resource models for state and federal agencies, while also fulfilling the planning needs of local governments, planning district commissions, land trusts, and other non-profit conservation groups, who seek comprehensive ways to balance land use and prioritize conservation. Through our conservation partner-specific and multi-media approach to implementation, we are also working to assure that these tools are most useful to diverse Conservation Planning efforts throughout the Commonwealth.
