Building Resilience

Science-Focused Projects

Past Projects


2019 Climate Adaptation Plan

La Jolla Band of Luiseño Indians

The 2019 Climate Adaptation Plan for the La Jolla Band of Luiseño Indians is a living document that provides a foundation for the Tribe to address climate change impacts to a variety of sectors including natural resources, infrastructure and economy, health and wellness, and community and culture.


Batiquitos Lagoon Resiliency Plan

Climate Scenario Plan for Batiquitos Lagoon

The Batiquitos Lagoon Resiliency Plan (BLRP) is a multi-pronged approach to understanding and planning for climate change impacts to the Batiquitos Lagoon Ecological Reserve.


Climate Resilient Connectivity

For the South Coast Ecoregion of California

The Climate Resilient Connectivity Project supports practical, proactive management of biodiversity under likely climate change scenarios through connectivity linkage maps for the South Coast Ecoregion.


Marshes on the Margins

Developing Tidal Wetlands Adaptation Strategies

By building upon the Southern California Wetland Recovery Project’s collaborative structure, the Marshes on the Margins project developed guidance and tools for wetland management.


Resilient Coastlines Project

of Greater San Diego

The Resilient Coastlines Project of Greater San Diego represents a regional and multi-faceted approach to building coastal resilience among multiple jurisdictions.


San Diego County Ecosystems Assessment

The Ecological Impacts of Climate Change on a Biodiversity Hotspot

The San Diego County Ecosystems Assessment is a technical report for California's Fourth Climate Change Assessment that provides an overview of the state of the science for climate change impacts to ecosystems and species in the region with specific guidance for managers.


Valuing Carbon Sequestration in Natural Landscapes

Ongoing Efforts and Future Opportunities

California’s chaparral ecosystems have been largely excluded from carbon sequestration evaluations and planning due to lack of understanding about carbon dynamics in these systems. However, chaparral is the most extensive vegetation type in the state with potential for above- and below-ground carbon storage.
