Climate Change Vulnerability IndexConservation Works

With the creation of the Climate Change Vulnerability Index, NatureServe has become the global leader in climate change vulnerability assessment.

The Index, or CCVI, provides land and natural-resource managers and policymakers with a rapid, cost-effective means of screening species' relative vulnerability to climate change. Learn more as Bruce Young, NatureServe's director of species science, and Greg Czarnecki, executive director of Pennsylvania DCNR's Wild Resource Conservation Program, describe why we developed the Index and how it provides the scientific basis for effective on-the-ground conservation action.
