Climate-Smart Conservation with Scenario Planning

Meeting Date: 5/15/2017 - 5/19/2017

This five day class, hosted by U.S. Fish and Wildlife, is based on two guides:

  • Climate-Smart Conservation: Putting Adaptation Principles into Practice and Considering Multiple Futures 
  • Scenario Planning to Address Uncertainty in Natural Resource Conservation

The first half of the course refers to the climate-smart conservation guidance and is designed to demystify climate adaptation for application to on-the-ground conservation. It will provide guidance in how to carry out adaptation with intentionality, how to manage for change and not just persistence, how to craft climate-informed conservation goals, and how to integrate adaptation into on-going work. 

The second half of the course refers to the scenario planning guidance and introduces the core elements of scenario planning. It will expose participants to a range of approaches and give them hands-on experience with specific scenario development techniques that integrate quantitative information and creative thinking to produce narratives.
