New Governors' Resilience Playbook

To minimize climate risk, maximize clean economic growth opportunities, and reduce future costs from extreme weather and climate variability – thereby facilitating additional investments in mitigation and critical infrastructure – the United States Climate Alliance (USCA) established the USCA Resilience Working Group. While reducing greenhouse gas emissions is the first and most critical risk management strategy, adaptation and resiliency efforts to address ongoing risks must be part of any comprehensive approach to respond to climate change. 


EcoAdapt is at the center of climate change adaptation innovation. We provide support, training, and assistance to make conservation and management less vulnerable and more Climate Savvy.

Oregon Climate and Health Profile Report

Oregon is one of many states studying and planning for the health impacts of climate change. As a participant in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Climate Ready States and Cities Initiative, the Oregon Health Authority’s Public Health Division (OHA) is undertaking a climate and health adaptation planning process known as BRACE (Building Resilience Against Climate Effects). The Oregon Climate and Health Profile Report is a principal component in the BRACE framework.

Harmful Algal Blooms Analysis Tool

Tool Overview: 

The satellite imagery analysis tool provides a screening level analysis to prompt field verification and sampling to confirm the status of a suspected cyanobacteria harmful algal bloom and presence of toxic species. This map displays estimated levels of cyanobacteria in large water bodies, calculated from satellite imagery in order to better understand potential risks to public health. Data is displayed in map form to show the spatial extent of blooms and is also viewable in long and short timelines to show how concentrations vary over time.

Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network (CoCoRaHS)

Tool Overview: 

CoCoRaHS is an acronym for the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network.  CoCoRaHS is a unique, non-profit, community-based network of volunteers of all ages and backgrounds working together to measure and map precipitation (rain, hail and snow).   By using low-cost measurement tools, stressing training and education, and utilizing an interactive Web-site, our aim is to provide the highest quality data for natural resource, education and research applications. We are now in all fifty states.
