National Wildlife Federation and ASFPM looking for climate change adaptation case studies

The National Wildlife Federation, in cooperation with ASFPM, is putting out a call for climate change adaptation case studies to highlight in a national report on ecological approaches to natural hazard risk reduction to human communities. We are particularly interested in hearing about innovative uses of natural and nature-based features to reduce impacts from floods, heavy precipitation and storms, sea level rise, erosion and related hydro-meteorological hazards to human communities. For this project, NWF is specifically interested in hearing about projects that reduce risks to human communities while generating co-benefits to ecosystems and fish and wildlife habitat. Potential areas of focus for the case studies include, but are not limited to:

  • Conservation of existing natural systems
  • Restoration or management of ecological processes (e.g. water or sediment flow, plant community succession)
  • Ecosystem restoration
  • Risk reduction measures that include nature-based features that mimic natural processes
  • Hybrid gray-green infrastructure for stormwater management and flood risk reduction
  • Living shorelines projects that incorporate ecological processes and use site-appropriate biological materials
  • Community relocation efforts, moving people out of harm's way
  • Community efforts to prevent at-risk development in floodplains
  • Policy innovations that preserve, promote and protect natural systems for flood risk reduction
  • Local zoning and land use policy that intentionally incorporates natural buffers to flood hazards
  • Managing fish, plant or wildlife species in ways that increase ecological and community resilience

If you are interested in seeing a particular project highlighted, please send a brief (500 word limit) summary to Nicole Holstein at holsteinn@nwf.org and alan@floods.org. Inquiries may be directed to Karl Schrass at schrassk@nwf.org, Stacy Small-Lorenz at smalls@nwf.org or Alan Lulloff at alan@floods.org. The deadline for submissions is Nov. 30.
