Regional Climate Actions
While it is important to set new, innovative directions for how the region can plan for a changing climate, it’s also important to acknowledge the current management actions and learn from current and past practices. For example, many current management actions have helped natural assets become more resilient to existing threats, including climate change.
In many cases this will continue to be the most appropriate management approach, however there is a need to look for ways to assist how the region can adapt to climate change and not just be resilient. The following sections explore how we, as a region, currently promote and implement both adaptation and mitigation approaches for our environmental, economic and social assets and values, to climate change.
