Transportation Infrastructure Investments and Consequences for Wildlife: A Review of Sub-Saharan

Investments in transportation infrastructure (primarily roads and railways) is a primary driver of threats and impacts to wildlife habitat and connectivity across sub-Saharan Africa. With this background in mind, this paper presents two analyses: 1) a comprehensive accounting of the global and regional multilateral development banks (MDBs) active in sub-Saharan Africa, their absolute investments in, and relative emphasis on, transportation infrastructure on the continent; and 2) a systematic review of the environmental and social safeguards and standards policies of MDBs that relate to wildlife, habitat, connectivity, and biodiversity conservation.

CSKT Climate Change Adaptation Plan

The Confederated Salish & Kootenai Tribes (CSKT) Climate Change Strategic Plan represents an early step towards addressing the impacts of climate change on the Flathead Reservation in Montana. The purpose of this initiative is to improve the Tribal community and Natural Resources Department’s resiliency by effectively informing climate change impact planning decisions made by the Tribes. It is designed to initiate collectively-beneficial climate change impact mitigation and adaptation solutions.

Summary of Corridors Proposed by States under Secretarial Order 3362: Improving Habitat Quality in Western Big-Game Winter Range and Migration Corridors

Roads were mentioned in all State Action Plans as being major barriers to wildlife movement in focal areas. Some states reported specific locations for potential crossing structures or other mitigation projects, while others mentioned roads more generally. This brief created a map that shows the general locations of the priority areas put forward by states. The map also indicates roads of concern for wildlife movement within the state.

High-Risk Zones for Ungulate-Vehicle Collisions During Montana’s Fall Migration Season

This report identifies short sections of highway that present the highest risk of collisions between vehicles and large ungulates during fall. It utilizes data on the frequency of wildlife carcasses recorded along highways by the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) as an indicator of the relative risk of wildlife-vehicle collisions (WVCs) across Montana. It aims to increase driver awareness of highway sections with particularly high risk of WVCs during the fall migration season.

Healthy Landscapes, Healthy People: A Guidebook for Montana Communities Preparing for a Changing Climate

This guidebook was prepared for the Faith, Science, and Climate Action conference, which took place in Bozeman, MT in October 2018. It is intended to serve as a guide for people who are concerned about human health and climate change, with a specific focus on faith communities.

Blackfeet Climate Adaptation Plan

This plan is the result of the unique holistic Blackfeet Nation planning process that includes all parts of tribal government, while respectfully considering traditional values and a collective community vision for the future. The resulting plan will lead the way for communities looking to integrate climate adaptation planning into human health and resource management.
