What is SERPPAS?

The Southeast Regional Partnership for Planning and Sustainability (SERPPAS) is a unique six-state partnership comprised of state and federal agencies that promotes collaboration in making resource-use decisions supporting national defense, conservation of natural resources, and sustainable working lands and communities in the Southeast US. SERPPAS serves as a forum to build effective working relationships between diverse partners, identify overlapping interests and implement mutually beneficial actions that support the mission of all the partners. Through a strategic planning process, SERPPAS has identified specific focus areas and strategic objectives that will protect the military mission, while at the same time promote conservation of key habitats and species, sustain rural economies and industries, and create better coordination across agency, state and governance boundaries.
