Climate Action - Adaptation

The impacts of climate change already are being documented across Montana, with a general trend toward warmer temperatures in both winter and summer. Precipitation trends are more uncertain although recent evidence suggest that both floods and drought will be more severe. Late summer stream flows and water availability for irrigation are diminishing. Forest fires are trending to be larger and more severe. Many non-profit groups, communities, and government agencies are developing conservation strategies to adapt to these changes and provide for more resilient natural and human systems.
