This report compiles information about the Tijuana River Valley to ensure that all stakeholders involved in the planning process have a baseline understanding of what resources are present within the valley, how the area is managed, and what threatens the long-term sustainability of the natural habitats and built infrastructure. Information in this document has been compiled with input from the CURRV Kick-off Stakeholder Workshop, providing the foundation for the scenarios and the development of climate adaptation strategies.
In preparation for conducting a climate change vulnerability assessment, TRNERR convened a scenario planning workshop where coastal geomorphologists, engineers, oceanographers, land use managers, and ecologists delved into how climate change might alter the physical landscape of the Tijuana River Valley. The process and results of the workshop discussions are summarized in this report outlining four potential futures.
Adaptation Strategies and an Implementation Plan are being developed to inform the 2017 update of the Reserve’s Comprehensive Management Plan, ensuring climate change adaptation is a central component to management and the core programmatic areas- Cultural & Historical Resources, Education & Community Outreach, Research, Stewardship, and Training. This document will be updated as new stakeholder input is incorporated.
Below are workshop summary reports resulting from collaborative CURRV workshops and trainings. Click here for more information on CURRV events, including working group meetings, expert workshops, and trainings.

Our Artist-In-Residence, Audrey Carver, brought the science to life through her painting. The exhibit contains murals that illustrate the four different possible futures, or scenarios, that scientists developed through CURRV. Each of the four scenes highlights the habitats and wildlife that would be characteristic of each scenario. The paintings are interpretations of the science behind the scenarios, providing a window into the future. To learn more please visit: http://trnerr.org/visualizing-the-future/
