About: 
 
Hear from the creators and early users of the new Commission for Environmental Cooperation North American Marine Protected Area Rapid Vulnerability Assessment Tool. This tool designed in a collaborative process that included EcoAdapt, the Commission on Environmental Cooperation and west coast of North America marine protected area managers and scientists. The tool was designed to help marine protected area managers evaluate the implications of climate change for the habitats of their sites. The tool, available in English and Spanish, has three parts (a user guide, a set of blank worksheets, and a booklet containing sample completed worksheets), which used together allow marine protected area managers conduct a rapid vulnerability assessment and adaptation strategy development process. Webinar participants will hear: 
  • Why the tool was created 
  • An overview of the tool (how it works, what it looks like, where to find it) 
  • The experience of using the tool 
  • Additional Application of the Tool 
  • And of course there will be opportunity to ask questions and get answers!
