Project Summary

Climate change is likely to affect natural and human systems in San Luis Obispo (SLO) County including impacts to agriculture, human health, natural resources, infrastructure, emergency response needs, and tourism. The National Center for Conservation Science and Policy (now the Geos Institute), in partnership with the Local Government Commission, convened a series of workshops in SLO County to identify resources and populations that are most vulnerable to climate change and then to develop initial strategies to increase the capacity of human and natural systems to adapt to these changes.

Project Summary

As part of its mission, Maine Sea Grant educates communities on important marine and coastal issues. This project was developed to 1) uncover the barriers that coastal property owners and officials are faced with in preparing for climate change and coastal hazards, and 2) encourage collaboration between stakeholders to create and implement responses.

Project Summary

Alaska is in the process of creating a statewide Climate Change Strategy to guide its programs and policies. Under the leadership of the Climate Change Sub-Cabinet, different advisory groups have provided recommendations on potential responses to climate change, including those on mitigation and adaptation. Using these recommendations, the Sub-Cabinet will develop a Climate Change Strategy for consideration by the Governor.

Project Summary

Located in southwest Oregon, the Rogue River Basin consists of unique ecological areas and natural resources that provide important ecosystem services to the region. Climate change is likely to generate significant new stresses and exacerbate current stressors to water quantity and quality, species, habitats, and ecosystem processes of the Rogue Basin.

Project Summary

Olympic National Forest (ONF) is comprised of approximately 600,000 acres on the Olympic Peninsula in western Washington. The ONF Land Management Plan (OLMP), which is focused on maintaining biodiversity and restoring important habitats, acts as the guide for natural resource management activities in ONF. By promoting landscape diversity and biodiversity, the OLMP facilitates resilience and increases adaptive capacity. In addition to the OLMP, the U.S.

Project Summary

Located across southern Oregon and northern California, the Klamath Basin consists of unique ecological areas and natural resources that provide important ecosystem services to the region. Climate change impacts, such as warmer air temperatures and decreases in water levels, are likely to significantly affect natural systems and resources of the Klamath Basin.

Project Summary

The Hayward shoreline, located along east San Francisco Bay, is susceptible to inundation from wave action and flooding. Increasing sea level, which is predicted to rise by 16 inches in 2050 and 55 inches in 2100 in the bay, further threatens the area. To assess the impacts of anticipated sea level rise along the Hayward shoreline, the Hayward Area Shoreline Planning Agency (HASPA) commissioned a study by an engineering consulting firm, Philip Williams and Associates (PWA), to evaluate vulnerable infrastructure and examine strategies to protect wetlands and shoreline development.

Project Summary

The California coastline extends for more than 2,000 miles and is vulnerable to a range of natural hazards such as storms and extreme high tides that will be made worse by sea level rise. In 2003, the California Energy Commission’s Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) Program established the California Climate Change Research Center to sponsor climate change research focusing on regional and sectoral impacts.

Project Summary

Goleta Beach State Park is located just north of Santa Barbara, California. Goleta Beach is a dynamic coastal system, with alternating patterns of accretion and erosion throughout its history. However, since the 1970s, it appears that Goleta Beach has eroded substantially, prompting Santa Barbara County to examine potential strategies to mitigate beach loss. In 2009, the Goleta Beach 2.0 Concept Planning Process (“Goleta Beach 2.0”) was established to reexamine managed retreat options for the park in order to mitigate coastal erosion.

Project Summary

Chula Vista is the second largest city in the San Diego metropolitan area of southern California. Since the early 1990s, Chula Vista has been working to address climate change and in early 2009, the city tasked the Climate Change Working Group (CCWG) with developing strategies to help plan for and adapt to the potential impacts of climate-related changes. In October 2010, the CCWG released a final list of recommendations on climate adaptation strategies to reduce the city’s future risk from climate change-related impacts.
