Course Description 
This course is based on the guide to the principles of Climate-Smart Conservation and is being held in conjunction with the 2016 Ocean Climate Summit. The Climate-Smart Conservation guide is the product of an expert workgroup on climate change adaptation convened by the National Wildlife Federation in collaboration with the National Conservation Training  Center and other partners.  The course focuses on climate adaptation for application to conservation. It will provide guidance in how to manage for change and not just persistence, how to craft climate-informed conservation goals, and how to integrate adaptation into on-going work. Conservation practitioners and natural resource managers will learn to become savvy consumers of climate information, tools, and models. 
At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:
  • Design adaptation planning processes that are relevant at multiple scales
  • Evaluate conservation goals from a climate change perspective
  • Explain how climate change vulnerability assessments, scenario planning, and climate models inform adaptation  
  • Integrate climate adaptation into existing planning and decision making processes and policies
