Speakers: California Landscape Conservation Cooperative (CA LCC) Staff: Debra Schlafmann, Andrea Graffis, and Deanne DiPietro
Abstract: In the Central Valley, natural resource management is made even more challenging by changing climate-driven factors that add to uncertainty about the future. The Central Valley Landscape Conservation Project (CVLCP) is bringing scientists and managers together to identify and implement actions that maximize the adaptive capacity of biodiversity under multiple future scenarios.
CA LCC staff will provide an overview of the progress the Central Valley Landscape Conservation Project has made towards planning for climate change adaptation.
We’ll talk about the next steps for the CVLCP: workshops in 2016 to develop landscape-scale adaptation strategies that address changing ecological and physical processes and to identify adaptation strategies for species and habitats that address their specific vulnerabilities and stressors.
Most importantly, we will tell how you and your organization or agency can benefit from the work already done, describe the envisioned end-products, and discuss opportunities to join the Central Valley partnership.
