The BMAP covers an area of 2.14 million hectares of geologically and ecologically diverse lands united by common climate change threats to hydrology and access, fisheries, and vegetation. Focusing on these resource areas, the mission of the BMAP is to:
- Synthesize published information and data to assess the exposure, sensitivity, and adaptive capacity of key resource areas – hydrology and access, fisheries, and vegetation and disturbance;
- Develop science-based adaptation strategies that will help to mitigate the negative effects of climate change and assist the transition of biological systems and management to a warmer climate;
- Ensure the adaptation strategies are incorporated into relevant planning documents; and
- Foster an enduring partnership to facilitate ongoing dialogue and activities related to climate change in the Blue Mountains region.
