In 2009, the Environmental Stewardship and Parks and Protected Areas Divisions of the BC Ministry of Environment distributed Common Statements of Understanding and Working Principles related to climate change adaptation. These principles should be taken into consideration in all future projects and planning. The Ministry recognizes that it must prepare for and adapt to the unavoidable impacts rising greenhouse gas concentrations will cause throughout the Province.

Project Summary

In 2008, the Board of the San Lorenzo Water District approved a climate change resolution that commits the District to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and considering the impacts of climate change in all planning documents. The 2009 Master Water Supply and Management Plans discuss how climate change will impact local water resources. Climate change is expected to cause drier and shorter wet seasons regionally, making both water conservation and efficiency priority issues for water managers.

Abstract

This is a crucial year for the international efforts to address climate change, culminating in COP 15 of the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Copenhagen on 7-18 December. There, Parties to the Convention and the Kyoto Protocol are expected to agree on an ambitious and effective international response to climate change for the next commitment period.It is also a crucial year for the world’s forests. The Copenhagen agreement will likely include a range of forest-related adaptation and mitigation measures.

Abstract

Faced with the increasing number of species and ecosystems at risk and escalating threats such as climate change, resource managers and practitioners need a way to prioritize conservation challenges in order to allocate limited resources. The Conservation Framework provides a set of decision support tools to enable collaboration between government and non-government resource managers and practitioners using clearly defined criteria to:

1) prioritize species and ecosystems for conservation; and

2) determine the most appropriate and effective management actions.
