Climate Change Adaptation in the Arid Southwest: A Workshop for Land and Resource Management
Sky Island Alliance Adaptation Workshop 2010
September 20-21, 2010
Are you grappling with effective resource management and conservation in the face of climate change? Although natural resource managers, scientists, and conservation organizations recognize the need to respond to the effects of climate change, there are many outstanding questions. How can existing information be applied? What is still uncertain and how do we work with uncertainty? What is already being done and what should be done next? To explore and address these questions, Sky Island Alliance is convening a three part series of workshops over the next two years as part of the Sky Island Alliance climate change adaptation project.
