Climate change solutions
Solutions are actions that work: They address causes, lessen impacts, raise awareness and even create new opportunities. California offers one example of how solutions can involve and benefit multiple parties. The state demonstrates that strong economic growth is compatible with strong actions to limit global warming and related risks. Through legislation, technology and a culture of innovation, communities within California become sustainable with practices that gain international recognition. Scientists lead initiatives that draw together research and resources. Solutions are near — and necessary to steer us toward a cooler planet.
Helping species adapt
The country of Nepal, in a coordinated multinational effort, has doubled their wild tiger population since 2010.
Species: getting strategic about conservation
From drought-tolerant wheat to abalone and corals that can better withstand ocean acidification, scientists are helping to nurture more climate-resilient species. As some tree species move further upslope, resource managers are also planting species more suited to a drier, hotter world, and they’re exploring new ways to protect forests and wildlife from drought and increasingly severe wildfires.
