This framework for action enhances existing Chesapeake Bay Program strategies, policies, and implementation plans, while providing a foundation for integrated restoration for integrated restoration activities. Based on an increased understanding of landscape and watershed processes, the framework targets the need of specific living resources in four target habitat areas through on-the-ground restoration projects. Moreover, decision-making will improve as we strengthen our ability to target, integrate, and restore key habitat functions via three phases outlined in the framework: Phase I: Facilitate habitat restoration projects, research and monitoring immediately. Phase II: Develop a process for targeting habitat restoration projects within a landscape or watershed framework. Phase II: Foster partnerships that use the expertise of federal, state, and local governments and public and private efforts to implement effective restoration projects throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed, using the targeting information provided in Phase II.
