Call for Participation: EBM Tools Network/Open Channels Survey of Tools and Resources for Addressing Climate Change Impacts on Marine Ecosystems


There is a severe lack of information on which tools and resources have actually been used for addressing current and potential climate change impacts on marine ecosystems and which of these tools and resources have proven most helpful/effective. The EBM Tools Network, in collaboration with OpenChannels.org, is working to address this information gap by conducting a short survey of tools and resources that are being used or have been used for developing or implementing actions to address current and potential climate change impacts on marine ecosystems. Please participate in this survey if you have been, or are currently involved in, developing or implementing actions to address current and potential climate change impacts on marine ecosystems. The survey should take between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the number of tools and resources about which you provide information. Please respond by October 31, 2013.


They are interested in information about a broad range of “tools and resources” including written guides, models, protocols, replicable methodologies, computer software, apps, databases, and other types of useful resources for conducting marine climate change adaptation work.

The information gathered in this survey will form a resource base that will be shared with the broader marine community and will be extremely valuable to others getting started in marine climate adaptation work. A summary of the results will be published on OpenChannels.org and advertised through the EBM Tools Network mailing list. The results will also be used to inform the work of select projects such as the Reefs Tomorrow Initiative.

Please contact Sarah Carr at sarah_carr@natureserve.org if you have any questions about the survey.
