WEBINAR: Climate Change Adaptation and the Southwest Climate Change Initiative

Tuesday, March 29, 2011 (All day)



Patrick McCarthyPatrick McCarthy, 1990 Switzer Fellow and Director of Conservation Programs at the New Mexico chapter of The Nature Conservancy, will present this webinar on Climate Change Adaptation and the Southwest Climate Change Initiative.

Climate change is affecting the Southwest more than any other region of North America other than the northernmost latitudes.  Learn about how the Southwest Climate Change Initiative, a multi-organization partnership led by The Nature Conservancy, is building knowledge and tools to help conservation practitioners manage changing landscapes in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah.

Patrick will present examples of climate change adaptation projects the Initiative has undertaken, working with both public and private organizations that manage millions of acres of land in this extremely vulnerable region.  He will also present lessons learned on four pilot landscapes where scientists and land managers are testing various strategies for climate change adaptation.

For more information about the Southwest Climate Change Initiative, please go to:

This webinar will be of particular interest to climate change scientists, land managers, conservation biologists, and land conservation practitioners working on local, regional or national levels.
