Organization:

Description: 

Deadline passed as of April 7, 2017. Deadline for 2018 unknown. The program seeks to support actions that anticipate and respond to potential climate change impacts and maximize long-term conservation success. To achieve these ends, the program prioritizes projects that manage for dynamic ecological processes, landscape functionality, and species assemblages, rather than those aimed at maintaining historical conditions or individual species. Applicants must specify the sources of science and analyses upon which their adaptation project is based, and articulate how that climate adaptation science informs the proposed conservation goals and actions. The program also prioritizes projects that will use strategic communications activities to scale up their conservation impact.
