Description: This monograph is an examination of the experience in the Pacific Northwest implementing the Northwest Forest Plan, Economic Adjustment Initiative (NWEAI). First, a brief description of the NWEAI background and framework, and a socioeconomic overview of the region prior to the NWEAI provide the setting. Next, accounts of the NWEAI experience in each of the three states in the region; a chapter on the NWEAI impact on people and communities’ and a review of field level efforts to implement business, local government, and ecosystem management projects build a comprehensive picture of the NWEAI programs through the eyes of the managers and community development practitioners who conceived and implemented the site specific projects. A synthesis of NWEAI related research work begins the final section on what had been learned from the NWEAI experience and questions still remaining. This monograph ends with an overview of key community and economic development issues in the region that have been addressed by the NWEAI and the potential of the innovative NWEAI model as a guide for other resource related economic development and mitigation efforts.

Keywords: Northwest Forest Plan, Northwest Economic Adjustment Initiative, Pacific Northwest, community development, economic development
