First Informational Webinar on Friday, October 22nd

On October 18th, 2021 California released its draft 2021 California Climate Adaptation Strategy for public comment. Building upon successes and shortcomings of the initial climate adaptation strategy in 2009, this draft outlines the state’s sector-specific plans to address climate adaptation and includes timelines and success metrics for each specific action. The 2021 Strategy is undergoing internal review, and the state invites the public to provide input that will inform the approach to finalizing the plan. Public Review and Comment will be accepted through mail and email up to November 17th. 

 

Following the period of public comment, the state will review and release the final strategy as an interactive website rather than a stagnant document. By releasing the strategy as a dynamic website, the state aims to increase accessibility of information to Californians. Additionally, this format allows for more consistent public updates on progress and adjustments to be found in one hub. The state invites the public to engage with the 2021 Strategy draft through informational webinars, public workshops, and tribal listening sessions and to provide feedback. 

 

California’s historic $15 billion climate package and updated 2021 Strategy signify the state’s commitment to climate adaptation and mitigation, but there is always more work to be done. The public is now being given the chance to provide invaluable insight that will be used to direct climate resilience efforts across the state – Take Action now!
