Malibu’s 21 miles of coastline include some of the world’s most famous beaches and highly valued coastal property. Sea level rise poses an enormous threat to the sandy beaches of Malibu as well as to the multi-million dollar homes lining the coast.
Sea level rise, erosion, increased temperatures, and changes in precipitation are among the many climate change impacts expected to affect California’s natural and built environment. In 2009, the California Climate Adaptation Strategy was released.
Sacramento County, California is developing a Climate Action Plan (CAP) in two phases. Phase 1 is intended to provide a framework on how to manage climate change impacts, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and manage resources in the county. Phase 2 is still in development and will consist of an implementation plan including both mitigation and adaptation actions.
