What is the Climate Adaptation Toolkit?

The Climate Adaptation Toolkit for Marine and Coastal Protected Areas was created to make climate adaptation planning a simple, direct, and feasible process for marine protected area managers. It contains tools that help protected area managers evaluate the vulnerability of their sites to climate change, identify appropriate adaptation strategies and learn about those strategies through case studies, reports and other resources.

What is in the Toolkit?

  • A step-by-step guide to undertaking a Rapid Vulnerability Assessment for marine and coastal areas
  • Structured and searchable adaptation strategy ideas with supporting case studies, reports and tools
  • Foundational resources
  • Selected experts who can be contacted for technical guidance
