Florida Climate Adaptation Explorer
Posted byBeth Stys
The Climate Adaptation Explorer (CAE) provides a starting point from which to address the predicted impacts of climate change on Florida's fish, wildlife, and ecosystems. The CAE provides an easy to navigate format for users to access a broad array of climate change information. Content includes an overview of climate change, impacts of climate change in Florida, impacts on Florida's species, impacts on Florida's ecosystems and habitats, interactions with existing stressors, and vulnerability to climate change. The goal is that this "guide" will provide the tools for better integration of adaptation actions and tasks into broader policies and programs, serving as a toolkit to help natural resource managers and others understand and address current and future impacts of climate change on Florida's ecosystems.
The Climate Adaptation Explorer is intended to serve as a resource in understanding potential impacts and help in the development of adaptation strategies that could be implemented by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and other natural resource management agencies or groups.
