Tool | May 2020

These facilitation guides and job aids, part of a Resilience Metrics toolkit, provide tools and activities for each step of the process to develop and track metrics of adaptation success.

Case Study | May 2020

These case studies, part of a Resilience Metrics toolkit, show how particular communities have defined and tracked their progress on climate adaptation goals.

Website | April 2020

This climate adaptation planning toolkit compiles lessons learned by five National Estuarine Research Reserves. It is designed to help communities set goals and identify specific indicators to evaluate progress toward a climate resilient future.

Webinar Brief | September 2019

This document is a comprehensive post-webinar report that includes a summary of the panel discussion, records of the Q&A session and comments submitted by attendees about next steps for climate resilience, the results of audience polls administered during the webinar, an account of who attended the webinar, and a list of participants who opted to list their contact information to foster connections among climate adaptation and resilience practitioners and researchers.

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.

Project Overview | May 2019

This project overview describes a project led by Elkorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve to communicate the results of a recent national synthesis of NERR Sentinel Site data on marsh resilience to sea level rise.

Webinar Brief | March 2019

These slides summarize a webinar given by Maggie Pletta of the Delaware Reserve on March 12, 2019, about the development of new, innovative visitor displays at three reserves, partnering with students at the University of Delaware to produce gesture-controlled, educational computer games.

Project Overview | January 2019

This project overview 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.

Multimedia | December 2018

This webinar, which originally aired on December 12, 2013, discusses the Tijuana River Reserve's collaborative efforts to develop a vulnerability assessment that informs an adaptation strategy to address sea level rise and riverine flooding.

Report | December 2018
Report | December 2018

This report describes the findings of a 2011 Collaborative Research project that investigated the Matanzas Basin's vulnerability to sea level rise in Florida and identified potential adaptation strategies. 

Tool | December 2018

This game developed as part of the 2011 Collaborative Research project "Planning for Florida's Rising Tides" introduces participants to sea level rise adaptation strategies and provides an understanding of the participants' preferences for different strategies.

Tool | December 2018

This pre-survey is part of a role-play game developed as part of a 2011 Collaborative Research project on sea level rise adaptation in Florida. Each player is assigned a different stakeholder role and fills out this pre-survey before starting the game, which serves as a foundation for helping participants understand each others' perceptions of sea level rise adaptation strategies. 

Project Overview | December 2018

This project overview describes a 2012 Collaborative Research project that developed a decision-making framework and tools to guide coastal wetland recovery and management in Southern California.

Project Overview | December 2018

This project overview describes a 2011 Collaborative Research project that piloted an approach for stakeholder-driven planning that communities in Florida can use to prepare for sea level rise.

Report | November 2018

This document summarizes a tool developed by the NERRS to evaluate and compare the ability of tidal marshes to thrive as sea level rises.

Journal Article | November 2018

This paper, published in Biological Conservation, describes an innovative approach developed by the NERRS to evaluate the ability of tidal marshes to thrive as sea levels rise. 

Tool | November 2018

This tool is a novel approach to compare the resilience of different marshes to sea level rise. 

Project Overview | October 2018

This project overview describes a 2018 Science Transfer project where 13 reserves are sharing their experiences in managing conflict during collaborative research projects and synthesizing lessons learned.

Case Study | October 2018

This case study profiles the 2015 Climate Scenario Planning for the Kenai Peninsula Science Transfer project led by the Tijuana River and Kachemak Bay Reserves.
