Description

This poster is a sampling of The Nature Conservancy’s tools to support investments in nature based solutions to problems caused by the impacts of population growth and climate change on the Puget Sound region.

The Regional Conservation Partnership Program Assessment Tool provides the steering committee with the foundational information needed to inform decisions and provide transparency in directing future funding. This spatial assessment uses overlays of geographic data inputs from various sources which are indicators of agricultural prominence, habitat value to species, water quality, and future pressures to salmon and shellfish

Our Flood Risk Explorer Application for the Coastal Resilience decision support system allows for the viewing of inundated areas and associated damages today and in the future, when increased freshwater flows and sea level rise may exacerbate flood risk.

TNC’s Breakthrough Science and Analytics provide Puget Sound communities and partners the best science and analytics to help identify problems, evaluate choices, and make evidence-based decisions. We develop strategies to solve complex problems in ways that benefit the environment, the economy and social equity.

TNC & UW’s “Outside Our Doors” publication synthesizes 40 years of research on benefits of nature in cities. It is a comprehensive analysis of current evidence on how our human communities need nature in and around them to thrive.

Last but not least we hope to display an iPad showing a five minute video of Dr. Jennifer McIntyre’s research demonstrating how stormwater in Puget Sound impacts salmon and our community and what nature-based solutions we can employ to resolve the issue.
