Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 161 / Tuesday, August 21, 2007 / Notices was established by the President in 2002 to coordinate and integrate scientific research on global change and climate change sponsored by 13 participating departments and agencies of the U.S. Government. The CCSP is charged with preparing information resources that promote climate-related discussions and decisions, including scientific synthesis and assessment analyses that support evaluation of important policy issues. This report has been prepared by a team of experts from academia, governmental and nongovernmental organizations, and the private sector in response to the mandate of the U.S. Climate Change Science Program’s Strategic Plan (2003). SAP 4.4 reviews the state of knowledge of adaptation options for key, representative ecosystems and resources that may be sensitive to climate variability and change. It is designed to serve resource managers and decision makers interested in using science to inform adaptation to the impacts of climate variability and change. The report examines (1) the combined effects on ecosystems of climate changes and non-climate stressors, and consequent implications for achieving specific management goals; (2) adaptation approaches that reduce the risk of negative impacts on management goals; and (3) ways to overcome barriers or take advantage of opportunities to improve the likelihood of successful adaptation implementation.
