Climate Change Adaptation Strategies for Focal Resources of the Sierra Nevada, California

February 2014

In collaboration with the U. S. Forest Service and California Landscape Conservation Cooperative (CA LCC), EcoAdapt has identified a suite of priority climate change adaptation strategies for focal ecosystems and wildlife species of the Sierra Nevada region of California including: Alpine and Subalpine Systems, Mountain Yellow-Legged Frogs, Yellow Pine/Mixed Conifer Systems, Red Fir Systems and Marten, Wet Meadows and Fens, and Oak Woodlands. After a vulnerability assessment process, draft implementation plans were developed for each of the focal resources, incorporating the priority adaptation actions.

NOAA Coral Reef Climate Change Strategy and Implementation Plan 2014-2016

2014

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Change Strategy and Implementation Plan refines and builds upon NOAA’s Coral Reef Conservation Program Goals and Objectives 2010-2015 to direct Program investments in reducing the impacts of climate change and ocean acidification to coral reef ecosystems. This Plan will be used by the Program to draft internal proposals, requests for federal funding, and evaluate received proposals. The Plan will guide the Program's efforts to aid coral reef managers and dependent communities.

Taking Action: A Progress Report on the National Fish, Wildlife and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy

2014

The National Fish, Wildlife and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy is a framework to support adaptation and conservation of the country’s natural communities over the next five to 10 years (from 2013), based on climate change projections for the next century. The multi-partner strategy outlines a unified approach to maintaining the key terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems needed to sustain fish, wildlife and plant resources under the accelerating impacts of climate change.  This Taking Action progress report describes 50 projects that demonstrate implementation of a variety of actions recommended by the Strategy.

Maryland Forest Preservation Act of 2013

October 1, 2013

In April 2013, the Maryland General Assembly passed the Forest Preservation Act of 2013 (HB 706, approved by Governor Martin O’Malley on May 2, 2013 and effective October 1, 2013), which seeks to stop forest loss in the state and maintain the state’s existing 40 percent tree canopy cover by instituting a “No Net Forest Loss” policy. Instead of using regulations or maintenance requirements to prevent forest loss, the Act utilizes new and modified incentives for private landowners to conserve and preserve forestland.

New Hampshire Ecosystems and Wildlife Climate Change Adaptation Plan

October 2013

This 2013 Adaptation Plan from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department (NHFG) is an amendment to New Hampshire’s 2005 Wildlife Action Plan (WAP), which even then acknowledged climate change as a primary challenge for the state’s ecosystems and wildlife.

Shifting Skies: Migratory Birds in a Warming World

June 18, 2013

Shifting Skies: Migratory Birds in a Warming World details how a warming climate could lead to a decline in some bird populations and even some extinction if action is not taken to curb GHG emissions and adopt “climate-smart” conservation strategies. Recommendations are provided on how to address climate impacts on wildlife by reducing carbon pollution, and for safeguarding species from the current and future impacts of climate change.

National Fish, Wildlife, and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy

March 26, 2013

Founded on an agreement among major conservation interests (e. g. local governments, states, tribes, conservation organizations, federal agencies, and private landowners), the National Fish, Wildlife, and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy is an integrated, coordinated, and comprehensive response to the threats of climate change. This multi-partner strategy outlines a unified approach to maintaining the key terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems needed to sustain fish, wildlife and plant resources and the services they provide in the face of accelerating climate change.

Nevada Wildlife Action Plan

March 1, 2013

Developed by the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW), Nevada’s State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP) revision was published in 2013. The revision was completed to incorporate the potential impacts of emerging and expanding stressors - including climate change - on the state’s fish and wildlife species, and habitats in greatest need of conservation.

Wildlife in a Warming World: Confronting the Climate Crisis

January 30, 2013

From the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), Wildlife in a Warming World examines case studies from across the country illustrating how climate change is altering wildlife habitats and contributing to population declines. Recommendations are made to protect both wildlife and communities in various ecosystems from the impacts of climate change, such as extreme weather, sea level rise and wildfires.
