The Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats

Summary:

This webinar will be presented by Jen Plunket ofthe North Inlet-Winyah Bay NERR, Scott Lerberg of the Chesapeake Bay NERR, and Robin Weber of the Narragansett Bay NERR. Changes in climate affect ecosystems directly and interact with current stressors to impact vital coastal habitats. Adaptive capacity imparted from a system’s natural traits or potential management actions can lessen these impacts. The Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats (CCVATCH) is a spreadsheet-based decision support tool that utilizes a team of local experts - land managers and researchers - to assess the possible interactions of climate change, stressors, and adaptive capacity to understand the climate vulnerabilities of a habitat. The CCVATCH Guidance Document provides background information and assessment questions for each climate-stressor interaction and adaptive capacity considerations.
