Conservation Action Planning Guidelines for Developing Strategies in the Face of Climate Change

The Nature Conservancy

The methodology outlined in these guidelines was developed by The Nature Conservancy to assist twenty existing conservation projects adapt their current strategies to climate change. These projects were part of the 2009 Climate Adaptation Clinic (i.e., Climate Clinic), held September 1-3, 2009 in Salt Lake City, Utah. The original guidance, tools, and methods developed specifically for the Climate Clinic were tested by the twenty projects during the three day workshop. These significantly revised guidelines reflect the learning and insights gained from the application of the original guidance at the Climate Clinic and can be used more broadly in our Conservation Action Planning efforts.
