What Makes The Climate Atlas Unique

The Climate Atlas builds on previous research and current efforts to identify and prioritize high-value landscapes for climate mitigation and biodiversity protection.

The tool adds to this work in four novel and important ways:

  1. It focuses on climate and biodiversity.
  2. It includes Alaska, which is not often included in data analyses of this kind.
  3. It uses a rigorous modeling approach to combine indicators.
  4. It’s designed to directly meet user needs.
