Project Summary/Overview

Preparing for the Changing Climate: a Northeast-Focused Needs Assessment is the first region-wide snapshot from regional, state, and local scales on how communities are preparing for a changing climate, and what resources and assistance they need to succeed. The report, published by Clean Air-Cool Planet, is based on direct outreach to over 200 communities from Maine to New Jersey, including survey responses from 34 local governments, six regional planning agencies, and eight state agencies.

Project Summary/Overview

Climate change poses a significant and emerging threat to public health. Drought, heat waves, flooding, and disease are all exacerbated by climate change. Across the globe, climate change has been directly linked with hundreds of thousands of deaths each year and indirectly affects the health of a comparable number of people. Public health agencies and organizations can play a vital role in helping to prepare the public for these impacts, and in reducing emissions that lead to further changes in our global climate.

Project Summary/Overview

The Lower Willamette region is located in northwestern Oregon and is predicted to experience climate changes including increases in temperature, extreme weather events, and reduced snowpack. To address these challenges, the Climate Leadership Initiative (CLI) conducted a series of workshops and published a report entitled “Building Climate Resiliency in the Lower Willamette Region of Western Oregon.” The report provides 40 multi-sector adaptation recommendations to prepare the Portland area for a changing climate.

Project Summary/Overview

Atlin is a primarily native community located in northwestern British Columbia, Canada. In 2007, the Northern Climate ExChange (NCE) hosted a week-long climate change community awareness and preparation workshop. The goal of the workshop was to discuss ways that climate change may impact the livelihoods of Atlin residents and to identify community vulnerabilities and opportunities. Since then, NCE has worked with Atlin to assess the community's adaptive capacity and create a more formalized climate change adaptation plan.
