Abstract: In the face of escalating impacts from climate change, thequestion of adaptation success is a practical and moral imperative. But, how dowe know whether adaptation to climate variability and change in the coastalzone is actually occurring, and whether the adaptive actions taken are good,useful, and effective? The Successful Adaptation Indicators & Metrics(SAIM) project has worked collaboratively with five reserves (Wells NERR,Hudson River NERR, Jacques Cousteau NERR, Tijuana River NERR, and Kachemak BayNERR) and their stakeholders over the past 4 years to help answer thesequestions. Specifically, the project has uncovered insights regarding: (1) whatclimate change adaptation success means in different locations, (2) whatrelevant actions and processes are needed to move toward aspired goals, and (3)the challenges involved in setting up a manageable approach to track progresstoward a common vision. The Science Collaborative team - together with thereserve partners - is now at the point of synthesizing lessons learnedand finding ways to share them in the most useful way with the NERR System as awhole. Join the webinar to learn more about the project, some lessons learned,and help us determine what would be most useful deliverables from the project for you.
