Climate Change Adaptation - Arkansas
Climate Change History
In 2008 Arkansas completed a Climate Action Plan with assistance from the Center for Climate Strategies (CCS). Arkansas’ plan focuses exclusively on the reduction of greenhouse gases (mitigation). It does not address preventative or protective strategies (adaptation). Wetlands are not featured in the plan.
Current & Future Action
Arkansas has established a Climate Change Working Group to examine species vulnerability and best management response to habitat impacts. This group is presently in an investigation phase, and has established a deadline of October, 2011 to produce a final report.
Pilot Programs/Current Studies
The state does not, as yet, have any specific pilots or case studies dealing with wetlands and climate change.
