Presentation Transcript

  1. A searchable vulnerability assessment database Robin O’Malley and Laura Thompson USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center, Reston, VA

  2. There is no way to know about VAs being conducted for different regions, species, or other ecological elements

  3. New assessments are being undertaken without knowledge of the methods or results of relevant ongoing or completed assessments

  4. Data and knowledge gathered by completed assessments are not being used by managers outside the entity conducting the assessment

  5. Compiling VA efforts into one place would reduce costs and increase the value of existing assessment investments Database

  6. Database scope • Include VAs from: • Federal agencies • State agencies • Local agencies • Universities • Nongovernmental organizations • A process has begun to ensure compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act

  7. Database scope Focus will be on domestic VAs, but the country boundaries will be “fuzzy” and allow assessments that encompass parts of Canada, Mexico, Caribbean, and insular Pacific, etc.

  8. More of a “registry” than database • Basic reporting elements • Contact information • Location • Assessment endpoint (target) • Vulnerability assessment methodology • Vulnerability assessment components • Method of climate projection • Partners or collaborators • Link to a specific decision • Abstract

  9. Database hosting • Federal self-hosting (USGS) • Global Change Information System (GCIS) • CAKEx – EcoAdapt
