A Vulnerability Assessment Workshop for
Focal Resources of the Sierra Nevada
*Stay tuned! Agenda coming soon!*
Tuesday, March 5, 2013 (All day) through Thursday, March 7, 2013 (All day)
Cal State Sacramento
The goal of this workshop is to assess the vulnerability of a suite of focal resources (species, habitats, ecosystem services) to climate change. The workshop will also include a review of climate science for the Sierra Nevada, vulnerability assessment training, discussion and refinement of regional management goals and action opportunities, and identification of spatial analysis needs to facilitate adaptation planning. This is the first workshop of a two-part workshop series. The second workshop will focus on developing adaptation strategies for focal resources.
Land managers, planners, natural resource specialists, science and community partners, and conservation practitioners.
Workshop products will include a climate science synthesis for the Sierra Nevada; a digital database of vulnerability assessment results including narrative evaluations, scores, and references to peer-reviewed literature; maps of climate exposure for the region; and a workshop support page that includes links to all presentations and materials.
