Creating Practitioner-Driven, Science-Based Plans for Connectivity Conservation in the Washington-British Columbia Transboundary Region

Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NWCASC), Climate Impacts Group

In order to address the need for effective connectivity management in the face of climate change, scientists teamed with land managers in the transboundary region of British Columbia and Washington State to apply the best available science directly to the information needs of those seeking to manage connectivity. The scientists and managers used conceptual models to understand and project a wide range of future impacts to connectivity for 13 case studies. They also identified a diverse set of adaptation responses to address connectivity.
