    This document originated in 2008 as a collaborative project of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the University of Maryland's Graduate Program in Sustainable Development and Conservation Biology. The original title was A Primer on Climate Change for the National Wildlife Refuge System. The Primer has evolved into Planning for Climate Change on the National Wildlife Refuge System in response to DOl and FWS mandates. In particular, Planning for Climate Change is a Conserving the Future deliverable. The purpose of Planning for Climate Change is to help Refuge System planners and managers fulfill DOl and FWS mandates to incorporate climate change considerations into planning documents.
