New Funding Opportunity for RCP Climate-Resilient Biodiversity Conservation Planning Announced

Members of the Regional Conservation Partnership (RCP) Network in New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine can now apply for a new grant to help with conservation planning. 

The grant is open to RCPs interested in crafting a biodiversity conservation priorities map focused on climate resiliency, or updating an existing biodiversity conservation priorities map to include climate resilience science. Supported by the Open Space Institute Land Trust’s Resilient Landscapes Initiative, the grant focuses on GIS capacity, leadership training, and project oversight. 

Developing a climate-resilient biodiversity conservation map with focus areas will help RCPs identify priorities for their organization, as well as local partners, with a larger regional vision and focus. Including climate resiliency in conservation planning helps RCPs conserve land and biodiversity today for the warming world of the future using the best tools available.
