Abstract

Connie Millar discusses the basic principles of ecosystem management (EM), specifically in national forests in California and nearby states.

Abstract

The National Climate Assessment assesses the science of climate change and its impacts across the United States, now and throughout this century. It documents climate change related impacts and responses for various sectors and regions, with the goal of better informing public and private decision-making at all levels.

Abstract

State, federal, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are investing significant resources to conduct landscape-scale assessments of the location, condition, and vulnerability of renewable natural resources. These assessments provide critical information on contiguous landscapes (e.g., ecoregions, watersheds, habitats, communities) that can be vital to a range of partners in developing landscape-scale management strategies and plans. They also provide important perspectives for subsequent finer scale management, assessment, and monitoring.

Abstract

This strategy was created to help coastal decision-makers, legislators, and the public look ahead to possible effects of global climate change on the Oregon coast and to help frame a process for coastal communities and agencies of the State of Oregon to work together to plan for those effects. The goal is resilient, Climate-Ready Coastal Communities.

Abstract

EcoAdapt, in collaboration with the U.S. Forest Service and California Landscape Conservation Cooperative (CA LCC) hosted the Adaptation Planning Workshop for the Sierra Nevada June 4-5, 2013 in Sacramento, California. The goal of the workshop was to identify management strategies that will help regionally important ecosystems and species adapt to changing climate conditions and to lay the groundwork for adaptation action.

Abstract

This vulnerability assessment is an initial science-based effort to identify how and why focal resources (ecosystems, species populations, and ecosystem services) across the Sierra Nevada region are likely to be affected by future climate conditions. The overarching goal is to help resource managers and stakeholders plan their management of these focal resources in light of a changing climate. Specifically, this information can facilitate priority setting for management action and responses, helping to sustain optimal conditions for and productivity of focal resources.

Abstract

The California Natural Resources Agency, in coordination with other state agencies, is updating the 2009 California Climate Adaptation Strategy. The draft Safeguarding California Plan augments previously identified strategies in light of advances in climate science and risk management options. The plan is currently open for comment.

Abstract

This document, The United States National Climate Assessment–Alaska Technical Regional Report, is one of eight regional reports that will provide input to the 2013 National Climate Assessment. It was produced through the leadership of the 2012 NCA Alaska Region Technical Report Writing Team (appendix A), but is the culmination of the efforts of many contributing authors who are recognized in appendix B. Discussions began in 2011 (fig. 1) and the process included four public outreach events.

Abstract

The Working Group I contribution to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) provides a comprehensive assessment of the physical science basis of climate change. It builds upon the Working Group I contribution to the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report in 2007 and incorporates subsequent new findings from the Special Report on Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation, as well as from research published in the extensive scientific and technical literature.

Abstract

The Executive Order directs Federal agencies to take a series of steps to make it easier for American communities to strengthen their resilience to extreme weather and prepare for other impacts of climate change.
