Making biodiversity conservation "Climate Smart": adapting approaches for a changing climate

Adapting Conservation Approaches workshop - AGENDA

This workshop includes six short presentations by conservation practitioners leading on key aspects of climate change adaptation. This will be followed by a panel dicsussion on how the "Climate-Smart" principles introduced can be applied at local, regional and global scales to provide practical tools for conserving biodiversity under chnaging climates. We will also explore how these principles can best be compiled, disseminated and used by the IUCN Species Survival Commission's new Climate Change Specialist Group.

Talks include:
• Principles and criteria for Climate-Smart conservation (Leigh Welling, US National Parks Service)
• Assessing vulnerability: launch of the results of IUCN’s global assessment of climate change vulnerability of birds, amphibians and corals (Wendy Foden, IUCN)
• On-the-ground climate change adaptation in action: examples from WCS’s programmes around the world (James Watson, Wildlife Conservation Society)
• Assisted colonisation in response to climate change (Mark Stanley-Price, WILDCRU)
• Monitoring and evaluation of adaptation actions (Stu Butchart, BirdLife International)
• Emerging lessons from the tropics: Climate change vulnerability and adaptation planning (Mary Klein, NatureServe)
