Abstract

The field of climate change adaptation is in a period of critical transition. The general concepts of adaptation have been well developed over the past decade. Now, practitioners must move from generalities to concrete actions, including implementation, monitoring, and evaluation.

Abstract

In 2010, Sumner County was chosen to participate in the Climate Solutions University (CSU) program created by the Model Forest Policy Program and the Cumberland River Compact. The county was in the process of developing its 2035 Comprehensive Plan. The population of Sumner County has grown substantially since the 1980s and is projected to continue to grow to nearly 235,000 people by 2035. During the planning process, local leaders placed an emphasis on natural resources protection, which fit well with many of the strategies involved in adapting to climate change.

Abstract

The impacts of climate change will be felt on both a global and local scale. In Whatcom County, Washington, changes in climate and hydrologic regimes will disrupt ecosystems, communities, and key elements of our economy. In response, the Whatcom County community should protect our valuable forest, water, and related natural resources from climate change risks with local, on-the-ground solutions.

Abstract

In 2010, the Model Forest Policy Program (MFPP), the Cumberland River Compact, and the Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association (NSEA) came together to create a climate adaptation plan for the community of Whatcom County, Washington. It came about because MFPP recognized the critical need for local community resilience against the impacts of climate change by protecting forest and water resources. This climate adaptation plan for Whatcom County, WA presents the results of a year of community team effort, deep and broad information gathering, critical analysis and thoughtful planning.
