  • Summary of Resource Concerns in South Carolina
    Start Date:3/30/2007
    End Date: 12/31/2007  

     

    Executive Summary

     

    ESRI-SC collaborated with the NRCS-SC to develop a summary of resource concerns in South Carolina. The perspective of natural resource concerns is more specifically, but not exclusively, in relation to agricultural activities in the state.   

    This publication is arranged to address the themes articulated in the United States Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resource Conservation Service’s Strategic plan for 2005-2010, Productive Lands, Healthy Environment (USDA-NRCS 2006).  The Strategic Plan addresses the following NRCS Mission Goals, namely:

    1. High-quality, Productive Soils
    2. Clean and Abundant Water
    3. Healthy Plant and Animal Communities
    4. Clean Air
    5. An Adequate Energy Supply
    6. Working Farm and Ranch Lands

    According to the NRCS, “The Strategic Plan sets the direction for NRCS and describes our conservation priorities and goals.  Bold, forward-looking, and far-reaching, this plan challenges us to reformulate some past approaches and develop and adopt new approaches.  This plan will guide NRCS in implementing key overarching strategies, managing agency business lines, meeting customer needs, and developing and strengthening capacity to achieve our mission goals.”  

    Summary of Natural Resource Concerns in South Carolina received an award by Graphic Design USA for in-house publications.
