Thurston Climate Adaptation Plan: Climate Resilience Actions for Thurston County and South Puget Sound

Thurston Regional Planning Council
Created: 5/08/2019 - Updated: 5/15/2019


The Thurston Regional Planning Council (TRPC) prepared the Thurston Climate Adaptation Plan — which recommends actions to help Thurston County and the broader South Puget Sound region prepare for and adjust to adverse climate change impacts (adaptation) and bolster resilience. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provided a National Estuary Program grant for the project. The Washington Department of Commerce administered the funding, and TRPC hired Thurston County and Earth Economics as subcontractors. TRPC is grateful for the support of these organizations and the thousands of area residents who served on the project’s advisory committees, attended meetings, and otherwise contributed to the plan’s development.
