Minnesota Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment

Duration

July 2012 - December 2012

Narrative

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources convened expert panels to conduct ecosystem-scale climate change vulnerability assessments for selected habitats using a systems mapping process. The mapping process identified key drivers of change, relationships among drivers, stressors and their relative strength of influence, including the assignment of vulnerability and confidence scores. The goal is to compile the data gathered from the expert panels to inform adaptation strategies relative to climate change scenarios into Minnesota’s State Wildlife Action Plan.
