  Workshop Wrap-up

The workshop on natural resource mitigation, adaptation and research needs related to climate change in the Great Basin and Mojave Desert provided 310 participants an important information exchange opportunity at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on April 20 - 22, 2010. The inter-organizational workshop was a joint effort sponsored by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Geological Survey, National Park Service, Environmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, and Desert Research Institute in collaboration with several other agencies and organizations.

Thirty oral presentations (video), 42 posters (posters), and 14 breakout sessions described the current state of knowledge and the tools available to mitigate and adapt to ecosystem changes driven by a changing climate. Further discussion and syntheses outlined immediate and longer-term research and information needs, and agency-, department- , government-, and society-level strategies and actions that exist or are still needed to help manager’s better address changing climate. Outcomes of the workshop are being synthesized for delivery. Presentations, Video, and Posters are available; a synthesis document is expected by late summer 2010.
