Management Brief | September 2019

This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the September 9, 2019 panel webinar on Climate Adaptation and Resilience.

Factsheet | May 2019
Factsheet | January 2019

This factsheet describes a 2018 Catalyst project that is enabling five reserves that have been participating in the Successful Adaptation Indicators and Metrics project to refine and share lessons and resources they've developed with the full Reserve System.

Report | December 2018

These risk assessments detail how climate could change in four New England municipalities over the 21st century, outlining each town's key climate change risks and potential adaptation options to address these risks. These assessments were produced as part of a 2012 Collaborative Research project.

Case Study | December 2018

These case studies summarize findings from a 2012 Collaborative Research project studying climate change adaptation and risks in four New England communities. 

Report | December 2018

These stakeholder assessments capture opinions about climate change and adaptation held by diverse stakeholders in four New England municipalities as part of a 2012 Collaborative Research project.

Tool | December 2018
Tool | December 2018

This document provides guidance to those wishing to use the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH") - a decision support tool which guides users through a series of questions to calculate numerical climate vulnerability scores for ecological habitats.

Factsheet | December 2018

This factsheet describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that refined and piloted the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH").

Website | December 2018
