Project Summary

In 2010, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will host a series of meetings to create tools and strategies to help natural resource managers and decision makers prepare for changes in climate. These meetings will be focused on selective habitat conservation as a tool for climate change adaptation. Results from the meetings may be published in a document, as a website, or as a series of case studies.
