This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that demonstrated the feasibility of including carbon finance in funding strategies that support the conservation and restoration of tidal wetlands in the Pacific Northwest.
This project overview describes a 2016 Science Transfer project where staff members from the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve are being trained in the application of the CCVATCH tool to assess the vulnerabilities of local coastal habitats to climate change.
This project overview describes a 2017 science transfer project that developed a risk communication training for reserves to build risk communication capacity in four coastal communities.
This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the March 17, 2020 panel webinar on Blue Carbon.
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.
This project overview describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that developed a protocol to accurately measure suspended sediment concentrations in tidal marshes, enhancing understanding of marsh accretion and informing marsh conservation and restoration.
This project overview describes a 2012 Collaborative Research project that worked to address barriers preventing communities in South Carolina from embracing low-impact development strategies.
