North-central California Coast and Ocean Climate-Smart Adaptation Working Group Meetings

December 3, 2015 • Oakland, CA • Elihu M. Harris State Building, Conference Room 11
The goal of the North-central California Coast and Ocean Climate-Smart Adaptation Project is to collaboratively develop and implement adaptation actions in response to, and in preparation for, climate change impacts on habitats, species and ecosystem services (termed focal resources). Vulnerability to climate and non-climate stressors was assessed for select focal resources in the region during Phase 1 of the project through two decision-support workshops. Climate-smart adaptive management actions will be developed and prioritized by the Climate-Smart Adaptation Working Group in Phase 2 of the project.
The goal of the Climate-Smart Adaptation Working Group is to develop and prioritize climate-smart adaptive management recommendations that can be feasibly implemented by managers to reduce the vulnerability of focal resources, while considering a range of plausible future climate scenarios for the region.
