Materials for online workshops on the implications of climate change in the California Current Ecosystem

The Council is conducting a series of four regionally-focused workshops to explore the implications of climate change to 2040 in the California Current Ecosystem. A range of stakeholders are being invited to each workshop and the workshops are open to the public. Four climate change scenarios developed over the past year are a key resource that workshop participants will use to identify challenges resulting from climate change effects and formulate potential solutions and actions that the Council and other stakeholders could take.
