Climate Change Action in Coastal Habitats: Additional Resources and Websites

Resource list highlighting additional resources from federal agency partners addressing conservation in a changing climate.

Climate Change Impacts to Grasslands

Climate change impacts to grasslands and prairies include increased seasonal, annual, minimum, and maximum temperature and changing precipitation patterns. Because these ecosystems are relatively dry with a strong seasonal climate, they are sensitive to climatic changes and vulnerable to shifts in climatic regime.

Climate Change Resource Center

The United States Forest Service’s (USFS) Climate Change Resource Center (CCRC) is a collection of forest management resources. It includes an extensive library, climate change and carbon tools, webinars and short courses by topic area and ecosystem, as well as an introductory webinar for new users.

Climate Change Talking Points: Prairie Potholes and Grasslands

Understanding the Science of Climate Change Talking Points: Impacts to Prairie Potholes and Grasslands is a USDOI Natural Resource Report that is intended to provide park and refuge area managers and staff with accessible, up-to date information about climate change and climate change impacts to the resources they protect.

Coastal Areas Impacts and Climate Change Adaptation Website

The Coastal Areas Impacts and Climate Change Adaptation Website offers assessments of climate change impacts and adaptation efforts by region or by sector. It also provides additional resources, including an adaptation overview, which highlights examples of adaptation and ongoing adaptation efforts.

Coastal Community Planning and Development

NOAA’s Coastal Community Planning and Development training recognizes typical patterns of growth and understanding alternatives to coastal development are critical first steps in coastal land use planning.

Coastal Resilience

The Nature Conservancy’s Coastal Resilience Network provides geographically targeted resources to address ecological and socio-economic risks of coastal hazards through raising awareness, assessing risk, identifying choices, and taking action.
