The National Fish, Wildlife, and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy describes a collective framework for addressing climate change impacts across governments, landscapes, and sectors. During this session, we will discuss landscape scale projects that address climate risks. These projects are already underway across the country and are consistent with the recommendations set forth in the Strategy.
