File Designing and Scoping Climate Change Vulnerability Assessments for Coastal National Parks in the Northeast Region Guidance and Lessons Learned by Portal Web Editor — last modified Sep 22, 2017 01:36 AM
To plan for climate change adaptation, park resource managers need scientific information identifying the susceptibility of resources to climate change, when impacts are expected and how they are expected to interact with existing stressors. Climate change vulnerability assessments are a priority for many parks to support adaptation planning, but there is a need for park specific guidance on scoping, implementing and using vulnerability assessments. Several frameworks and resources are available focusing on coastal communities and on natural resources. This document summarizes some of these and draws lessons from assessments already completed or underway in parks in the Northeast. The National Park Service (NPS) has initiated a range of climate change research and monitoring actions that address park vulnerability assessment needs.

File Climate Change Vulnerability & Adaptation Desktop Study of STEWARD Priority Zones by Adam Welti — last modified Jul 30, 2014 07:02 PM
Desktop study of climate change vulnerability and adaptation in priority zones of the STEWARD project in West Africa. STEWARD was conceptualized in 2005-2006 as USAID’s regional program for conserving the biodiversity of the Upper Guinean Forest of West Africa, and it is currently (2011-2015) in its third phase – the ‘Implementation Phase.’ STEWARD is funded by the USAID/West Africa (WA) Regional Office of Environment and Climate Change Response (ROECCR) and is implemented by the U.S. Forest Service Office of International Programs. The Development Objective of the STEWARD Program is "Resilience of biodiverse ecosystems and human communities in target areas is maintained and strengthened and contributes directly to the ROECCR development objective."

File Nature’s Benefits in Kenya: An Atlas of Ecosystems and Human Well-Being by Rose Hessmiller — last modified Jan 18, 2014 01:58 PM
This report provides a new approach to examining the links between ecosystem services (the benefits derived from nature) and the poor. Through a series of maps and analyses, the authors focus on the environmental resources most Kenyans rely on such as soil, water, forest, rangeland, livestock, and wildlife. The atlas overlays georeferenced statistical information on population and household expenditures with spatial data on ecosystems and their services (water availability, wood supply, wildlife populations, and the like) to yield a picture of how land, people, and prosperity are related in Kenya. While the maps and analyses presented here will not provide easy answers to questions concerning the causes of poverty in Kenya and how ecosystems can best be managed to increase economic growth and improve livelihoods, they are a first step toward stimulating more informed dialogue and provoking questions for which answers may be found. The final section of the atlas provides general findings about the use of the introduced maps for sociogeographic analysis. It concludes with four recommendations that are expected to advance a more comprehensive accounting of ecosystem services and to improve the understanding of poverty-environment relationships in Kenya.
