Developing the first online, open-access and user-friendly tool to support climate–adapted conservation planning across British Columbia’s natural and protected areas.
There is currently no planning tool available that considers future climate change when establishing protected areas in British Columbia and projecting impacts on natural systems. This project, in partnership with The Nature Trust, Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society and the BC Parks Foundation, will address the core question: How can we adapt our conservation plans in BC to minimize the impacts of a changing climate?
This tool will be flexible for diverse user groups, preloaded with data, and updatable for future advances in BC climate change knowledge.
Opportunity Project: Began September 1, 2019 / Project Duration: Three years.
