3. Natural Resource Management & Conservation

Including adaptation in natural resource management and conservation is necessary in order to address climate change impacts on Great Lakes’ ecological functions and services. A range of options exists for managers and conservation practitioners to decrease vulnerability and increase resilience in natural systems. Examples include incorporating climate change into restoration, enhancing connectivity between areas to allow for shifting species movements, reducing local change, and reducing non-climate stressors that may exacerbate the effects of climate change.
