Integrated Strategies for a Vibrant and Sustainable Fresno County
The ClimateWise report, Integrated Strategies for a Vibrant and Sustainable Fresno County, details a suite of strategies that was developed by local leaders and experts during a series of workshops in 2009-2010. Workshop participants developed strategies for climate change adaptation – the process of preparing for climate change to reduce overall impacts to natural and human communities.
ClimateWise is a program of the non-profit Geos Institute. It is a process that helps local communities work across sectors to develop science-based, collaborative, and ecologically-sound adaptation strategies for both natural and human communities. The Fresno County Climate Change Adaptation Planning project was one of a series of pilot projects intended to help develop and refine the ClimateWise process. The Local Government Commission and Susanne Moser Consulting were partners on the project.
