Project Summary

The Nature Conservancy, along with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, initiated the Florida Reef Resilience Program (FRRP) in 2004 to study the health of the Florida Reef tract from the Dry Tortugas to Port St. Lucie. The FRRP seeks to determine what makes some corals more resistant than others to climate change impacts, what factors contribute to areas of high or low resistance, and why certain areas are more resilient than others.

Project Summary

The Florida Oceans and Coastal Council was created by the State of Florida to guide research priorities for Florida’s vulnerable coasts and oceans. The Council's mission is to coordinate public and private research to address emerging management needs in the state and develop a statewide research plan. It was developed by the Florida Legislature through the Oceans and Coastal Resources Act in 2005. Each year the Council reviews critical needs for the state and develops priorities for ocean and coastal research.

Abstract

The performance of crops, wild plants, livestock and aquatic resources under stress depends both on their inherent genetic capacity and on the whole agroecosystems in which they are managed. For that reason, any serious effort to increase the resilience of developing country agriculture in the face of climate change must involve the adoption of climate-resilient crop varieties and animal breeds as well as more prudent management of crops, animals and the natural resources that sustain their production while providing other vital services for people and the environment.

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.

Organization Overview: 

The NOAA Office of Habitat Conservation’s mission is to protect, conserve, and restore habitats for a broad range of societal benefits and idealizes three primary outcomes: increased protection of habitats, increased restoration of habitats, and increased public awareness and stewardship of habitats. To attain these outcomes, the NOAA Office of Habitat Conservation relies upon ecosystem based decisions, engagement of stakeholders, encouragement of communities to become stewards of the environment, partnerships, and the use of the best available science.

Project Summary

The Massachusetts Bays Project (MBP) was one of six pilot projects to receive a technical assistance award in 2008 from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Climate Ready Estuaries Program. The primary purpose of the project was to conduct a vulnerability assessment of salt marsh habitat in the area in order to adjust management policies to properly address the challenges of climate change.

Organization Overview: 

The 95,331 miles of ocean and Great Lakes coastlines are home to almost 153 million people, about 53 percent or the total U.S. population. Our nation’s coasts host a variety of industrial and business activities—fisheries, energy facilities, marine transportation, and recreation—that contribute tens of billions of dollars to the economy per year. Our ports handle about $700 billion in merchandise, the cruise industry generates $12 billion annually, and retail expenditure on recreational boating account for over $30 billion nationwide.
