Glick, P., J. Hoffman, M. Koslow, A. Kane and D. Inkley

Publication Date:

The purpose of this guidance is to provide an initial suite of tools and methods to assist in the planning and implementation of climate-smart restoration by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and its partners and grantees. The guidance is intended to be a living document that evolves in response to workshops, trainings, on-the-ground projects, and other stakeholder input. The body of this guidance is designed to provide an overall framework; more detailed information on conducting a vulnerability assessment and additional resources on restoration, climate change adaptation and the Great Lakes region are provided in appendices. Throughout this guidance, case examples illustrate how to apply this climate-smart restoration framework to the actual practice of restoration.
