A San Francisco Bay Area science-managment research group called the Terrestrial Biodiversity Climate Change Collaborative ( has developed customized climate vulnerability assessments for participating natural resource agencies of Sonoma, Marin, Napa and Mendocino counties via “Climate Ready North Bay,” a public-private partnership funded by the California Coastal Conservancy’s Climate Ready program.

With agency input guiding the development of climate change vulnerability assessments, customized analysis results have been made available to help these local organizations implement well-informed climate adaptation strategies. These products include customized maps, graphs, and summary technical reports tailored to site-specific resource management challenges, located within the study watersheds (see map at left).

See the Climate Ready North Bay website, hosted on the Climate Commons, to learn more about the project and see how local government resource management organizations are applying climate science to planning for the future of the North Bay region.
