The ACT Framework draws on collective knowledge to translate climate change projections into a portfolio of adaptation actions.
Land trusts can promote resilience and help priority species, habitats and resources weather the effects of climate change.
This 2-day, in-person instructor-led course provides a thorough introduction to adaptation planning, including practical skills, in-class exercises, and local speakers and discussions.
Adaptive management involves implementing a management strategy, closely monitoring its effects and then adapting future actions based on the observed results. In this way, planners simultaneously apply management practices and learn from those management
To support climate change adaptation planning the Bald Head Island Conservancy has developed a comprehensive public outreach campaign to help educate community members about potential impacts to the island and individual choices that can help improve the socioecological system’s resilience.
Being Prepared for Climate Change: A Workbook offers place-based organizations a guide to applying risk-based methodology to identify climate change vulnerability and plan to address likely threats to reduce risks. This guidance focuses specifically on water resource stressors, and offers a straightforward approach to risk identification and risk abatement planning.
Billion-dollar disasters are happening across the country, and climate change is often linked. These weather and climate disasters are becoming more frequent and more costly. Costs can be reduced with climate adaptation measures, such as restoring coastal marshes, increasing the flood-preparedness of homes, and treating stressed vegetation in wildfire-prone areas. But according to the recent National Climate Assessment, climate change is still outpacing our planning. To minimize our risks, we must reduce our carbon emissions as quickly as possible.
Building Capacity to Adapt to Climate Change Through Local Conservation Efforts is a report resulting from a two-year pilot project aiming to foster climate change adaptation at the community level.
The Climate Ready Estuaries Coastal Toolkit provides resources for estuaries, coastal programs and other organizations that are interested in learning more about climate change impacts and adaptation.
US EPA’s report, Climate Ready Estuaries: Synthesis of Adaptation Options for Coastal Areas, provides an overview of climate change impacts on coastal areas.
