Have you ever wondered how to address climate change in your conservation practice? Do you have an existing natural resource management plan or project that needs to address climate change? Would you like hands-on training for applying climate-smart principles to your plan or project? We have the workshop for you!
Don’t miss this opportunity to be involved in the Climate Adaptation Workshop (ALC3914) class hosted by the Peninsular Florida Landscape Conservation Cooperative and the National Conservation Training Center.
This short course provides hands-on training for applying climate-smart principles to real natural resource management plans and projects that are local or regional in scope. The training and coaching session is based on the guide Climate-Smart Conservation: Putting Adaptation Principles into Practice. Teams, consisting of two or more people, will be coached using the climate-smart conservation framework and will develop climate-informed conservation goals and integrate adaption planning into on-going work. Teams will document their project at the end of the workshop with a short summary. If you are a non-profit organization, this is a perfect opportunity for your team to prepare to apply for the WCS Adaptation Fund.
Applications for the workshop are due on November 3, 2017.
Registration is very limited, so don’t delay in submitting your application.
