This toolkit provides local health jurisdictions guidance on how to integrate climate change work into local public health practice.

Health departments of all capacities can incorporate climate change considerations into existing planning and programming. For those with higher capacity, this toolkit can serve as a resource for developing a Climate and Health Resilience Plan (also called an "adaptation plan" or a "climate change preparedness plan.") 

This toolkit is adapted from CDC's Building Resilience Against Climate Effects (BRACE) framework and modified based on the experience of five local health jurisdictions in Oregon. This toolkit builds on their lessons learned (pdf) through planning for climate change at the local level.
