Organization Overview: 

Carolinas Integrated Sciences & Assessments (CISA) is committed to improving the range, quality, relevance, and accessibility of climate information for decision making and resource management in North and South Carolina. CISA conducts research in collaboration with stakeholders in the Carolinas to identify and develop effective methods of providing climate science, data, and education.

Adaptation work: 

Supporting improved adaptation to current climate variability and projected climate changes is an element that cuts across many of CISA's activities. Because much of climate adaptation will be comprised of local actions, our efforts focus on informing local response to regional patterns and on major economic, environmental management, and social issues relevant throughout the Carolinas. Diverse interactions with stakeholders and decision makers aim to identify climate sensitive decisions. CISA team members organize and participate in efforts to:

Abstract

Climate change is now widely acknowledged as a global problem that threatens the success of marine and coastal conservation, management, and policy. Mitigation and adaptation are the two approaches commonly used to address actual and projected climate change impacts. Mitigation applies to efforts to decrease the rate and extent of climate change through the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions or the enhancement of carbon uptake and storage; adaptation deals with minimizing the negative effects or exploiting potential opportunities of climate change.

Project Summary

Each State in Mexico is mandated to complete a Climate Change Action Plan. In the State of Campeche, the Ministry of Environment and Sustainability is working with the local university's Center of Ecology, Fisheries and Oceanography of the Gulf of Mexico (EPOMEX) to prepare a plan for the region. The Ministry of Environment and Sustainability is also working to design, implement, and enforce state environmental policies to promote environmental protection and preservation of natural resources.

Project Summary

The Atlantic Climate Adaptation Solutions (ACASA) Project is a partnership among the provincial governments of Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and New Brunswick, and regional stakeholders including nonprofits, tribal governments, and industry. ACASA applied for and received a grant from Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) to build a collaborative effort to address regional climate change impacts. The partnership set goals and developed over 20 local projects to build the region’s capacity and resilience to climate change.

Project Summary

Nunavut has already experienced a number of climate change impacts, including loss of sea ice, permafrost, and habitat for key species. The Nunavut Department of the Environment developed a climate change strategy to address and prepare the province for future climate change.

Project Summary

The Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (PMNM) is situated in the northwestern portion of the Hawaiian Archipelago and is one of the world’s largest marine protected areas. Management of the Monument is the responsibility of three co-trustees: the State of Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources; the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. In 2008, the co-trustees developed the PMNM Management Plan for ensuring coordinated management of the natural, cultural, and historic resources of the Monument.

Project Summary

The Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary (CINMS), located off the southern coast of California, consists of approximately 1,110 square nautical miles of ocean and coastal waters. The primary objective of the CINMS is to conserve, protect, and enhance the biodiversity, ecological integrity, and cultural legacy of marine resources surrounding the Channel Islands for current and future generations. In 2009, a final management plan for the sanctuary was released that sets out priority management issues and actions for the next five to ten years.
