In general, conservation investments should be targeted toward areas that are more likely to be resilient to climate change, while remaining representative of the range of landscape features (e.g. geology, soils, topography) necessary to protect the full suite of current and future biodiversity. Investments in areas whose conservation values are expected to be significantly eroded by climate change (e.g. purchasing lands expected to be submerged by rising sea level) should generally be avoided. If they are chosen, they require additional justification (e.g. a viable plan for inland migration of coastal habitat).
