2018 STAC Video
State Technical Advisory Committees serve in an advisory capacity to the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and other agencies of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) on the implementation of the natural resources conservation provisions of Farm Bill legislation. Committees are intended to include members from a wide variety of natural resource and agricultural interests. Chaired by the NRCS State Conservationist in each State, these Committees are composed of representatives from Federal and State natural resource agencies, American Indian Tribes, agricultural and environmental organizations, and agricultural producers. The Committees meet regularly to provide information, analysis, and recommendations to appropriate USDA officials, who strongly consider their advice. Individuals or groups wanting to participate as members on a State Technical Committee may submit requests to the State Conservationist explaining their interest and relevant credentials.

USDA Helps Restore Endangered Species Habitat
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is working with local agencies in Florida to restore an endangered species habitatwhich happens to be on an air force base golf course. The USDAs Bob Ellison has more. (1:31) SAVING AN ENDANGERED SPECIES HABITAT ON A FLORIDA GOLF COURSE PROVED TO BE A CHALLENGE. BUT THE U-S DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE WAS ABLE TO COOPERATE WITH LOCAL AGENCIES TO RESTORE THE HABITAT OF THE ENDANDERED OKALOOSA DARTER. Travis Davis, Three Rivers RC&D: There were six isolated populations of the darter that were trying to comingle by removing culverts and obstructions for the fish to breed. THE GOLF COURSE, LOCATED ON EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE ON FLORIDAS PANHANDLE, CONTAINS CULVERTS THAT ARE HOMES TO THE DARTERS. BUT THE CULVERTS HAD BECOME DETACHED. U-S-D-AS NATURAL RESOURCES CONSERVATION SERVICE WORKED WITH STATE AGENCIES, THE GOLF COURSE AND THE AIR FORCE TO GET THE CULVERTS REJOINED AND THE PATHWAYS CLEARED SO ALL THE FISH COULD MINGLE. Steve Seiber, Chief of Natural Resources, Eglin Air Force Base: All of this is to prevent the sediments from entering the darter streams, which were inundating and smothering the vegetation, theyre habitat. SO FAR THE EFFORT HAS HELPED THE DARTER POPULATION INCREASE GREATLY IN ITS NATURAL HABITAT. Chris Metcalf, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service: I think roughly two to three thousand darters have been increased just because we did this project. John Harper, USDA NRCS: This is one major step with Eglin Air Force Base to ensure that the darter will continue to thrive and that hopefully in the future we will be able to downlist this species. Rep. Jeff Miller, R-FL: Its amazing to see the success in a very short period of time. The fish population has grown exponentially. Certainly the wetland areas that were disturbed have begun to heal themselves. The vegetation is growing in great. FOR THE U-S DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE, IM BOB ELLISON.

Partnering With Farm Conservation Agencies
Partnering with conservation professionals and agencies is a step every Iowa farmer should take to ensure the health and prosperity of their farm today and into the future. However, working with these agencies can be confusing and intimidating for the uninitiated. The sheer number of programs and resources available through your local Farm Service Agency (FSA), Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS), Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Army Corps of Engineers, and other agencies can be utterly mind-numbing. Then there's the inevitable confusion over which agency is the right resource on those issues that seem to blur the lines between agency directives.

Just Enough: The Right Mix of Natural Supports, Technology, and Paid Resources
Barriers to people who have an intellectual disability enjoying a home of their own are best overcome by cooperative and deliberate efforts between family members and other natural supports, paid supports (including developmental services agencies), and use of physical and digital technologies. This presentation features a mix of stories with self-advocates, family members, and developmental services professionals from across the province. They talk about how they overcame barriers and challenged themselves to have ‘just enough’ support. The concept of ‘just enough support’ is about meeting needs without unnecessarily compromising privacy, independence, and control. The presentation is hosted by Keenan Wellar of LiveWorkPlay in Ottawa and Maurice Voisin of South-East Grey Support Services in Flesherton.

Louis Putzel - Formalization as Development in Land and Natural Resource Policy
CIFOR Scientist Louis Putzel introduces a new special issue of Society and Natural Resources available here: http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/usnr20/28/5#.VVLEkWauW8k These articles are the product of a CIFOR project funded by the EC. For more information, see http://www.cifor.org/pro-formal. Responding to multiple problems affecting governance of natural resource access and trade, governments implement formalization processes, often driven by the interests of development agencies. In so doing, they interact with the contemporary political, social, and environmental contexts in which resources are extracted, produced, and traded. They also contend with histories of ownership, access rights, market configurations, and practices attached to resources and the lands in which they are located. As development policy, formalization frequently materializes as top-down restructuring based on current social and environmental norms. However, its adoption is often unsuccessful and entails risks including leakage, barriers to small or poor actors, elite capture, and negative effects on women or marginalized groups. The insights herein are informative to current processes of formalization associated with the European Union (EU) timber trade regime and other resource governance efforts. At the minimum, incorporation of adaptive approaches and user-accountable monitoring in such processes are recommended.

Dr. KImberly Coleman: The Role of Trust in Collaborative Natural Resource Management
Dr. Coleman, Postdoctoral Associate, UVM Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources, speaks about the role of trust in collaborative natural resource management. Many pressing natural resource issues require collaboration between a range of stakeholders. For example, wildland fire planning on a landscape scale in the United States requires multiple state and federal agencies, Tribes, non-profits, researchers, and private citizen to all work together. Scholars interested in collaborative natural resource management have consistently shown that trust is critical to successful collaborative efforts. However, trust is complex and multi-dimensional. This study explores the different dimensions of trust, their antecedents, and their role in supporting collaborative natural resource management.
United Nations Food Agencies in Somalia Promote Eating Fish to Fight Hunger
October 22 2013, DOLOW, SOMALIA -- The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) have joined forces with Somali authorities to encourage Somalis to eat more fish as a way to fight hunger in the Horn of Africa Despite Somalia's enormous marine resources, the country's fishing industry remains largely under-developed and its fisheries unexploited. This is partly due to decades of conflict and piracy on the high seas -- but also because fish does not form part of the traditional Somali diet . "The major aim of this campaign is to encourage thousands of displaced families living in and around Dolow to start including fish in their diets," said Luca Alinovi, the FAO representative in Somalia. "The Gedo region has two rivers, the Dawa and Jubba, yet the eating of fresh fish is nearly nonexistent." Somalia has a 3,300-kilometer coastline -- the longest in Africa -- yet the people of Somalia eat very little seafood. The country's per capita fish consumption is 2.4 kilograms per year, one of the lowest in the world. The country is still emerging from a food security crisis following the drought and famine of 2011 that left many thousands dead. 'Sustainable food systems' Celebrating this year's World Food Day in the southern Somali town of Dolow, the two Rome-based food agencies reached out to thousands of displaced Somalis in the border town, encouraging them to embrace fish as part of a healthy diet. "Sustainable Food Systems for Food Security and Nutrition" is the official theme of World Food Day in 2013, focused on improving understanding of problems and solutions in the drive to end hunger. FAO continues to develop Somalia's fisheries sector with training in sustainable fishing, fishing equipment, jetties and cold chains to support fish preservation, distribution and marketing. "Making use of natural resources is vital in fighting hunger," said Stefano Porretti, the WFP representative in Somalia. "WFP works with coastal communities, providing training in fishing and in preservation of fish products. Increasing the consumption of fish in Somalia will strengthen the livelihood of fishermen and provide a more nutrient-rich diet for Somali households." The "Fish is Good for You" campaign The campaign's messages are directed at female heads of households and young people with a goal of diversifying dietary habits biased against seafood. The "Fish is Good for You" campaign also focuses on the nutritional benefits of fresh fish. The campaign was first launched in the Puntland coastal town of Bossaso and in the Somali capital, Mogadishu. © FAO: http://www.fao.org

FEMA Accessible: Federal Emergency Management Agency's National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF)
Closed captioning is available in English, Chinese, German, Hindi, Italian, Khmer, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai, and Vietnamese. [Transcript:] During and after a disaster, the affected communities try to figure out how to recover and rebuild to a new normal. They also work on mitigation solutions to reduce the risk of damage from the next disaster. The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF) is scalable and flexible guidance on how the whole community can build, sustain, and coordinate delivery of recovery capabilities. The focus of the NDRF is to help prepare the community to recover, regardless of the size of the disaster, and encourages an inclusive recovery process which brings together traditional and nontraditional whole community partners to lead, manage, coordinate and participate in recovery efforts while increasing the community’s resilience. An important focus of the framework is that the community leads their recovery process and they have a realistic, well-planned, and a clearly communicated plan for a successful recovery. The framework explains how whole community partners – emergency managers, government agencies, private sector, nongovernmental organizations, and the public – collaborate and coordinate the best recovery and resiliency plan that fits the community’s need. The state and federal government play important roles as supporting partners, providing the community with resources and the support they need. It is important that the recovery plan and process includes the whole community. This includes people with disabilities and others with access and functional needs, as they are a part of the whole community and they can offer knowledge and expertise on what they need to recover and how the community can better help prepare for next disaster. A successful recovery requires flexibility, a unified and coordinated effort from the community, commitment to completing projects on time, understanding, and addressing various challenges and needs the community has. Each community’s recovery plan will be different and is based on the circumstances of the disaster’s impact on the community, the obstacles they may face, how they design their plan, and what their priorities are for recovery. The National Disaster Recovery Framework has six Recovery Support Functions (RSF) that are led by designated coordinating federal agencies that work with other primary agencies and supporting organizations whose programs may apply to a specific support function. The Recovery Support Functions are Natural & Cultural Resources, Housing, Economic, Infrastructure Systems, Health and Social Services, and Community Planning and Capacity Building. The Natural & Cultural Resources Recovery Support Function is led by the Department of Interior, and supports the protection of natural and cultural resources and historic properties in the community. The Housing Recovery Support Function is led by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and coordinates housing solutions that are affordable and accessible to the whole community, including people with disabilities and others with access and functional needs. The Economic Recovery Support Function is led by the Department of Commerce, and works with the local community, state, tribal and federal governments, and the private sector to rebuild the local economy. The Infrastructure Systems Recovery Support Function is led by the US Army Corps of Engineers, and works with the community to restore their infrastructure systems and develop a stronger mitigation plan to protect them from future disasters. The Health and Social Services Recovery Support Function is led by the Department of Health and Human Services, and addresses the community’s public health, health care facilities, and important social services needs. The Community Planning and Capacity Building Recovery Support Function is led by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and engages the community in their recovery planning and capacity to implement and manage their recovery plans. This function builds short-term and long-term community resilience, and empowers the local community leaders and members to make decisions on how to improve recovery outcomes for the whole community. As the NDRF is flexible and adjustable, the community is able to modify its recovery plan to fit their needs. Each part is an important piece in helping you and your community recover from a disaster and be better prepared for the next disaster. The recovery process will be a long and challenging one, but when all of these different parts of the framework work together as a team, they can help reduce the challenges and length of your recovery. For more information about your community’s recovery plans, contact your local emergency manager and learn more about how you can prepare, participate and best support your community.
