Adaptation Planning

Climate change is heralding greater variation, intensity, and uncertainty across the country. Many of our farmers, ranchers and land managers are already dealing with severe drought, rising sea levels, increased rainfall, seasonal shifts, invasive pests, and other weather and climate risks. In the face of these current and anticipated climate conditions, taking action to adapt can often help communities protect its citizens, infrastructure, and local economies. The process of evaluating vulnerabilities and prioritizing approaches to manage or minimize the impacts of climate change within an area is known as adaptation planning, and typically results in a public document called an adaptation plan. The following information and resources below can help you and your community get started, today.
