Growing Greener: Eco-Structure for Climate Resilience

May 2013

The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) partnered with King County, Washington, to help develop the Urban and Community Forestry Climate Preparedness and Response (CPR) tool. Using this on-line tool, landowners can view their own property using Geographic Information System (GIS), which then quantifies and explains existing land and forest characteristics (e. g. , total forest carb on stored at a particular site). NWF produced this guide designed to help local governments, organizations, and others replicate the CPR website and tool for their own communities, while also learning about the ways in which green infrastructure can provide natural protection from the impacts of climate change.
