Project Summary/Overview

Alaska is in the process of creating a statewide Climate Change Strategy to guide its programs and policies. Under the leadership of the Climate Change Sub-Cabinet, different advisory groups have provided recommendations on potential responses to climate change, including those on mitigation and adaptation. Using these recommendations, the Sub-Cabinet will develop a Climate Change Strategy for consideration by the Governor.

Project Summary/Overview

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and state and tribal wildlife agencies, created a National Fish, Wildlife, and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy to coordinate climate change responses in both the public and private sector. The strategy, released in March 2013, is a framework to guide responsible adaptation action by natural resource managers around the United States in the face of a changing climate.

Project Summary/Overview

In October 2010, the U.S. Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force released a series of recommendations to President Obama on how federal agencies could coordinate and collaborate on a national adaptation strategy. The Task Force released two progress reports in 2010 and 2011, and plans to continue to support implementation of the recommendations. This process represents the first steps towards a coordinated strategy for federal adaptation action on climate change.

Organization Overview: 

The GEOS Institute is a nonprofit, science-based organization dedicated to helping both human and natural communities predict and prepare for a changing climate. To this end, the Geos Institute applies the best available science to natural resource conservation issues through its scientific publications and its ability to link respected scientists to decision makers.

Abstract

The Northwest Indian Applied Research Institute (NIARI) at The Evergreen State College has produced this Community Organizing Booklet for Pacific Northwest tribal members (edited by Debra McNutt). The Booklet was developed out of a longer report (Climate Change and Pacific Rim Indigenous Nations: A Report to the Leadership of Indigenous Nations) and aims to make its technical themes accessible for Northwest tribal members, so they can start discussions on their own community responses to climate change.

Abstract

To shed light on adaptation costs—and with the global climate change negotiations resuming in December 2009 in Copenhagen—the Economics of Adaptation to Climate Change (EACC) study was initiated by the World Bank in early 2008, funded by the governments of the Netherlands, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

Project Summary/Overview

In 2006, the Hawaii Coastal Zone Management (CZM) Program updated the Hawaii Ocean Resources Management Plan (ORMP), a statewide plan to protect and improve the condition of ocean resources in the state. While the ORMP does not specifically address climate change, the ORMP Working Group, established to ensure implementation and advancement of the plan, does support the development of adaptation strategies that lessen the impacts of climate change.
