Forest and Rangeland Drought – Regional Two-Pagers

Effects of Drought on Forests and Rangelands in the United States: A Comprehensive Science Synthesis covers a wide expanse of management issues. The USDA’s Climate Hubs have synthesized the assessment for each of their region’s stakeholders.

Forest Carbon

Forest growth provides and important carbon sink. The efficient management of forests for carbon sequestration is closely related to sustainable and ecological forestry practices that use nature as a model.

Get Started

This site aims to provide introductory tools about climate change to the conservation community and offer resources to support learning and planning needs. The “Get Started” section offers guidance sorted into four main categories: Learn, Plan, Adapt, and Inspire.

Getting to Smart Growth: 100 Policies for Implementation

The Getting To Smart Growth guide describes concrete techniques for putting the 10 smart growth principles into practice.

Grasslands, Shrublands, Savannas, and Deserts

Grasslands, also known as prairies, steppes, or savannas, exhibit naturally dominant grass vegetation, typically in areas where there is not enough rainfall to support the growth of a forest but not so little as to form a desert. Deserts are biomes characterized by small amounts of moisture.

Green Infrastructure and Enhancing Resilience

Green infrastructure describes natural resource management interventions that use vegetation, soils, and natural processes to manage water and create healthier environments.

Green Infrastructure Mapping Guide

This online, self-guided resource shows spatial analysts how to incorporate green infrastructure into their GIS work to prioritize areas that will help reduce hazard and climate impacts.

Green Infrastructure Practices and Benefits Matrix

This quick reference provides information about common green infrastructure practices used to lessen community flooding. Included practices range from natural landscape conservation to nature-based solutions at the site level.

Guide for Considering Climate Change in Coastal Conservation

The Guide for Considering Climate Change in Coastal Conservation from the NOAA Office of Coastal Management’s Digital Coast provides a step-by-step approach for incorporating climate change information into new or existing conservation plans.

Guide for Considering Climate Change in Coastal Conservation

Climate change is affecting coastal environments, calling for revised conservation approaches, and therefore must be considered in long-term planning. This guide provides a step-by-step approach for incorporating climate change information into new or existing conservation plans. The guide’s six steps draw from existing strategic conservation planning frameworks but focus on climate considerations and key resources specifically relevant to the coastal environment, including coastal watersheds.
