Project Summary/Overview

Coral reefs are extremely vulnerable to climate change impacts, especially when combined with existing stresses such as land-based sources of pollution, habitat degradation, and overfishing. EcoAdapt has been working on a climate change action plan for Florida's reefs as result of the Reef Resilience conference recommendations in 2008.

Organization Overview: 

Freshwater Future helps people protect the Great Lakes.  We do this by providing funding, technical and communications assistance to groups working to protect and restore their rivers, lakes, wetlands and groundwater in the Great Lakes region.

Freshwater Future's mission is to build effective community-based initiatives to protect and restore the water quality of the Great Lakes basin.

Adaptation work: 

Freshwater Future’s Climate Program focuses on how to recognize and incorporate climate change adaptation into the work you are already doing to protect water resources. The need for climate change adaptation is based on the fact that no matter how much we attempt to mitigate greenhouse gases, it is evident that sufficient results cannot be achieved in the short term. The Earth is committed to continuing climate change. We cannot elimate at this moment in time climate change impacts.
