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.
