Scanning the Conservation Horizon: A Guide to Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment (webinar and handout)
This webinar focuses on a newly released guide to vulnerability assessment--Scanning the Conservation Horizon--designed to assist fish and wildlife and other natural resource managers as they work to prepare for and cope with the impacts of climate change. The guide provides an overall framework for how vulnerability assessment supports climate change adaptation planning efforts, covers how assessments can be designed to meet specific user needs, and offers case studies on existing assessments of species and habitats. The guide also represents a broad interagency collaboration; coordinated by National Wildlife Federation, it benefited from support and involvement from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Forest Service, NOAA, and the Department of Defense.
