National Wildlife Federation's Key Characteristics of Climate-Smart Conservation

Since the field of climate change adaptation is still developing, National Wildlife Federation has convened a group of conservation experts from federal and state agencies as well as other non-profits to write basic guidelines describing good climate-smart conservation. These "key characteristics" are intended to help natural resource professionals make their plans for wildlife and wildlife-habitat climate-smart.

The draft characteristics outlined here were presented at the Adaptation 2011 Workshop in June 2011, and will be the basis of a full length guidebook that NWF hopes to publish in 2012.
