Resilience and Climate Change: Adaptation Potential for Ecological Systems and Forest Management in the West Kootenays
Climate change is with us, and is having visible effects on forests in the West Kootenay today. Future changes are predicted to be significant in terms of increasing temperatures and reduced moisture—particularly in summer. These changes have the potential to cause significant shifts in the ecosystems we are familiar with, and in how they currently function. A recently completed two year integrated Vulnerability Assessment in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia was aimed at exploring these future changes. The main goals of the assessment were to increase knowledge about regional climate change and ecological resilience, and enhance the capacity of forest managers to adapt to the challenges of climate change. Project reports are available at the website.
