CHIN5.1: Assess risk of climate change to salmon recovery and incorporate into planning processes
Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Approach - Assess risk of climate change to salmon recovery and share assessment(s) and analysis with watersheds to incorporate into planning processes.
Desired Outcome - Better information on climate and natural disaster risk available.
Policy Needs - N/A
Example Actions - Use climate change projections to strengthen identification of salmon populations at high risk from climate change impacts. Develop a clearinghouse for all applicable climate change information and recommendations. Create a framework or vision for how to incorporate climate change considerations into planning processes.
Proposal Guidance - Consider partnerships that bundle data analysis with an application or implementation effort. Ensure the information needs of target audience is defined. Ensure that there is an understanding of local watershed planning processes. Utilize information and guidance from Washington Sea Grant’s regional coastal resilience project (slated to be completed by June 2018).
Local Context - Local context provides additional specificity on how a Regional Priority approach should be implemented in each local area; examples include sequencing, partners to consider, and critical areas. Local context for this Regional Priority approach is available here.
