Conserving Fish and Wildlife Through Science, Technology, and Partnerships
Climate Change Assessment Tool, an exciting tool developed in Europe that allows users to plug-in various details of their wetland, such as geographical location, wetland type, and subject of interest (plants, birds, archaeology etc.). Water source is one key input; currently the tools works for rainfall and river wetlands, functionality for groundwater-fed wetlands will follow shortly. The tool uses data from the UK Climate Projections programme and interactive results are presented based on 10, 000 realisations of future climate. The outputs show whether there is likely to be large, medium, or negligible impact on the wetland.

National Action Plan 2011 - Priorities for Managing Freshwater Resources in a Changing Climate, by the Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force.
Options for organizing watershed-based information:
AdaptationAction.org - an online resource and information exchange for individuals working on climate change adaptation projects, policies, funding schemes and communications
Collaborative Conservation Learning Network (CCLN) facilitates the exchange of ideas, innovations, tools and study results, and to foster connections among academics, practitioners and others, to help worldwide collaborative conservation efforts become effective and sustainable.
CAMEL - A free, comprehensive, interdiscpilinary, multi-media resource for educators. Teach, create and share curricular resources on climate change.
EPA Global Change Research Program's Integrated Climate and Land Use Scenarios (ICLUS) project - developing scenarios broadly consistent with global-scale, peer-reviewed storylines of population growth and economic development, which are used by climate change modelers to develop projections of future climate. In many cases, it is impossible to determine the impact of climate change without consideration of land use and land cover dynamics. Sign up to receive periodic updates on the ICLUS project.
