  • New classification marks paradigm shift in how conservationists tackle climate change

    5 days ago - By Phys.org

    A new study co-authored by researchers from the Wildlife Conservation Society's Global Conservation Program and the University of British Columbia Faculty of Forestry introduces a classification called Resistance-Resilience-Transformation that enables the assessment of whether and to what extent a management shift toward transformative action is occurring in conservation. The team applied this classification to 104 climate adaptation projects funded by the WCS Climate Adaptation Fund over the past decade and found differential responses toward transformation over time and across...
