The 2021 Southwest Adaptation Forum features the Connecting Wildlands and Communities project as a model for advancing transformational adaptation through interdisciplinary collaboration to support resilience for ecosystems and local communities. We invite you to learn more about this work and connect with the CWC Team.
The CWC project brings together an interdisciplinary team of planners, environmental engineers, ecologists, and geographers to explore how connected landscapes can support adaptation and resilience to climate change for both ecosystems and local communities in southern California.
Assessing the implications of connected landscapes on wildfire risks and patterns and recovery after wildfire impacts to ecosystems and communities.
Evaluating the impact of connected landscapes on hydrologic regimes as it relates to water quality, quantity, and sustainability for ecosystems and communities.
Focusing on research that will help protect biodiversity and natural landscapes from the impacts of climate change.
Developing a suite of robust products and applications that provide accessible, relevant, and data-driven products and decision-support tools to a diverse end-user community.
CONNECTING WITH THE COMMUNITY
Engaging with partners and stakeholders across the region to support climate resilient ecosystem and community planning and implementation.
