The California Natural Resources Agency, FEMA and California Emergency Management Agency, with help from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, are seeking feedback on the newly released Draft Climate Adaptation Policy Guide for local governments. The guide is intended to provide a framework to help local decision makers understand the considerations necessary for adaptation planning and policy development. This webinar continues a larger statewide discussion to ensure local governments have access to tools, resources and guidance in order to effectively integrate climate change impacts into local plans and programs.
Public comment is important to make sure the guide meets the needs of local and regional staff and officials. For more information and to the review the Adaptation Planning Guide before the webinar visit resources.ca.gov/climate_adaptation/local_government/adaptation_policy_guide.html.
The Sustainable Communities Learning Network is a service for local officials offered by the Institute for Local Government in partnership with the Information Center for the Environment at the University of California, Davis, with support from the Strategic Growth Council and The California Endowment.
