Thanks to generous support from Botanic Gardens Australia & New Zealand (BGANZ), the Climate Change Alliance of Botanic Gardens (CCABG) is very pleased to release the Landscape Succession Toolkit.
The Landscape Succession Toolkit is a first-of-its-kind and offers botanic gardens and arboreta a framework by which to adapt to the climate crisis, and transition their living landscapes and plant collections to ones that will continue to thrive in the future climate.
This free Toolkit contains the distilled learnings from the RBGV Melbourne Gardens’ Landscape Succession Strategy and insight from members of the CCABG, and seeks to generalise those lessons in order to be applicable to all botanic gardens and arboreta, in all contexts, around the world.
Contained within are the many benefits of landscape adaptation and succession, how to build your knowledge and understanding of climate, the practical applications of adaptive management, and guidance on how you might structure and draft your own strategy or planning document.
The Landscape Succession Toolkit is free and publicly available for download.
