CLIMATE CROWD NEWSLETTER - August 2019

Climate Crowd is a crowdsourcing initiative that convenes and supports a network of partners to gather data on how climate change is impacting people and nature, and supports on-the-ground projects that help rural communities adapt while reducing pressure on biodiversity.

In the news..

A recent study examined over 10,000 publications to determine the extent to which wildlife is able to keep pace with a changing climate. Results suggest that while some species have exhibited adaptive responses, it's unlikely that these responses will be enough to keep pace with the rapid rate at which change is occurring. An article by WIRED summarizes the key findings.

Call for WAIF proposals

With species struggling to keep pace with a changing climate, we need to develop novel approaches in conservation that can help wildlife adapt. Now in its third year, the Wildlife Adaptation Innovation Fund is pleased to announce a third call for proposals from WWF offices. For further information, see the full announcement and the proposal template.

New Brazil country summary report

Our new country report summarizes findings from interviews conducted in communities nearby Brazil's Black Lion Tamarin protected area by IPÊ, a local Climate Crowd partner NGO. Drought has affected the availability of food for both livestock and wildlife living within nearby forests, but nature-based solutions can help.
