Massachusetts H 4835 - An Act Promoting Climate Change Adaptation, Environmental and Natural Resource Protection and Investment in Recreational Assets and Opportunity

August 21, 2018

Massachusetts Governor Baker has authorized over $2. 4 billion in capital allocations for investments in adaptation to climate change, protecting environmental resources and green space across the state.  H 4835 enables critical financing for the state and local level environmental and community resilience. The legislation expands and codifies commitments of Executive Order 569 to ensure climate change adaptation and resiliency continue to be prioritized, state agency climate change vulnerability assessments are ongoing, and the State Integrated Hazard Mitigation Plan and Climate Adaptation Plan are continuously updated and implemented.

Michigan State Wildlife Action Plan (2015-2025)

2015

Michigan’s Wildlife Action Plan identifies the species of greatest conservation need (SGCN) and their habitats in Michigan. A subset of SGCN were prioritized, and the report includes “mini-plans” for the habitats of these focal species - which include critical threats, conservation actions, and the vulnerability to climate change for each species. For 2015-2025, Michigan will focus conservation efforts on these priority SGCN and key habitats with the goals established in this plan.

Minnesota Sentinel Lakes Program

The Section of Fisheries of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is leading a statewide collaborative effort to develop a system to monitor and record biological and chemical changes that occur in a sample of lakes that are representative of the state’s most common lakes. The program is designed to understand and predict the consequences of land use and climate change on lake habitats. This research builds off of the Sustaining Lakes in a Changing Environment program, or SLICE, that began in 2008.

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.
