EPA's Community-Based Adaptation to a Changing Climate

Created: 10/27/2020 -

Abstract

COMMUNITIES ARE FACING A CHANGING WORLD – a world of warmer temperatures, less predictable weather patterns, and rising sea levels. While impacts vary by location, these and other impacts threaten the reliable delivery of many community services. This resource discusses how climate change is affecting community services, presents sample adaptation strategies, gives examples of successful community adaptation actions, and provides links to other key federal resources.
