Sky Island Climate Adaptation

Project Dates

Sky Island Alliance is working with partners including the NOAA-funded Climate Assessment for the Southwest (CLIMAS), the Udall Foundation U.S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution, EcoAdapt, the University of Arizona Institute of the Environment, and School of Natural Resources and the Environment to connect leading planners and thinkers in natural resource management and conservation with experts on regional climate impacts and adaptation. Through this project researchers seek to increase resilience in the region by ensuring implementation of climate-smart, landscape level management and conservation. Tools include a climate change adaptation survey, the Arizona Climate Change Network (Sky Island Alliance), and climate change adaptation workshops.
