In the attached document, "Definition and Principles for Climate Smart Conservation", three sources are presented side-by-side: Resources Legacy Fund Expert Panel Guiding Principles for Ecosystem Adaptation; the National Wildlife Federation Climate Change Adaptation Principles; and Point Blue Conservation Science (authored by Ellie Cohen).

Six principles help the conservation practitioner apply the climate-smart approach in his or her daily work, and an appendix lists recommended resources. You can also watch Ellie Cohen's presentation on Climate Smart Principles.
