Wetland managers face a new set of challenges when addressing the impacts from global climate change. From wetlands protection to management, there are many new and emerging factors included in a growing body of knowledge about climate change and its effects on wetlands. Sea level rise, carbon sequestration, methane and invasive species are among the many topics in recent discussions about wetlands and climate change. A growing interest among states surrounds the science and development of climate change adaptation plans that incorporate natural resources, including wetlands. It is ASWM's goal to facilitate a working dialogue and to establish an informative resource on this ever-increasingly important topic. A weekly Climate Change feature(s) will be highlighted at the top of each climate change webpage.
Below are some helpful links to publications on wetlands and climate change by the Association of State Wetland Managers, as well as links to other resources and blogs. For more specific information on sea level rise, carbon sequestration, climate change adaptation and wetlands, explore the other topic webpages:
