Description:

This Webinar featured two experts from the West who are focused on adaptive management in the age of climate change.

The first was Tony Morse, who is one of the principal innovators behind METRIC, Idaho's award-winning technology for assessing field-by-field consumptive water use across large landscapes. The second was Bill Turner, of The Land Conservancy (TLC) of British Columbia, who is a recent signatory to the International National Trusts Organization's (INTO's) Dublin Declaration on Climate Change.

Both guests commented on the potential role of markets in addressing the emerging impacts of climate change.

This event was the next in a series hosted by the Conservation Finance Forum (with assistance from the Government Innovators Network), highlighting several topics of keen interest to the U.S. and international conservation communities.
