The goal of this document is to provide an overview of what we know from available downscaled climate knowledge for the Peninsula, where research is needed, and opportunities for working collaboratively to advance climate science and solutions.
Climate Change and the Baja California Peninsula:
A Baja Working Group Report
The Baja Working Group represents a diversity of disciplines and perspectives from both sides of the border. As such, members contributed individual perspective pieces on their core area of expertise and weighed in on how climate change may impact their work, and what the key needs are to address these impacts.
These perspectives cover a variety of topical areas, and demonstrate the range of expertise our group represents, as well as many areas ripe for collaboration and future work.
We would like to thank the many contributors who led Case Study Perspectives, and those to helped review, revise, and improve this report: Rodrigo Beas-Luna, Pamela Castro, Michelle María Early Capistran, Exequiel Ezcurra, Jeremy Long, Drew Talley, Kristin VanderMolen, and Alexandria Warneke.
We would also like to thank the International Community Foundation for helping launch the Baja Working Group, and for co-leading the Climate Resilience Fellowship that helped this vision come to fruition.
Finally, thank you to all of the Baja Working Group for their enduring enthusiasm for working together to strengthen our binational natural and human communities.
