Watershed Restoration

A Proactive Approach to Global Climate Change Adaptation and Ecosystem Resilience

Thinking Forward
Categorized Under: Environment

 

 

ICF discusses approaches that demonstrate how climate change adaptation, restoration ecology, and watershed management practices can lead to ecosystem resilience—in both the northern and southern hemispheres, as well as at the Equator. A management framework based on political climate, physical conditions, and economic context can be used to guide a more holistic watershed restoration approach. Holistic watershed restoration planning can be leveraged to increase ecosystem resilience and adaptive capacity in the face of extreme weather events associated with climate change. Consequently, linking climate change adaptation and the science of ecological restoration with watershed management practices can help guide restoration efforts in river basins at various scales throughout the world.
