Managing Risks to Conservation Investments Through Climate Adaptation

April 25, 2019

The Wildlife Conservation Society partnered with the Climate Resilience Fund to offer this guidance for investors funding conservation projects - such as private foundations, public agencies and local governments - on how to consider climate change risks inherent in their investments. Climate change is causing dramatic and unpredictable effects on ecosystems and natural resources - creating uncertainties for conservation funding decision making and the future outcome of investments. This guidance for conservation investors supports intentionality in anticipating and assessing climate change risks, which in turn safeguards these investments to advance conservation goals.

Wetlands Restoration for California Greenhouse Gas Reduction Grant Program

Administered by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, this grant program offers funds for wetland restoration or enhancement projects that result in a net reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Wetland restoration is both a climate change mitigation and adaptation strategy. Wetlands sequester carbon at high rates, while providing protection from flooding, sea level rise, coastal storm surge, and coastal erosion, as well as offer drought mitigation through groundwater recharge.
