Chinook Salmon Projects and Climate Change

Organization: 
Adaptation International, EcoAdapt
Description: 

Changing climate conditions, along with land-use and other ecological changes, are affecting the health, vitality, and resilience of Chinook salmon populations in watersheds throughout Puget Sound. Restoration and protection projects are designed to address the most critical factors affecting salmon populations. However, with climate change, these factors may change: the medium- and long-term success of the projects and expected benefits to salmon may be compromised and/or current investments may not achieve expected results.

The goal of this guidance document is to provide Lead Entities with a framework for reviewing and evaluating sponsored project proposals in light of changing climate conditions.
