On October 18th, California released its draft 2021 California Climate Adaptation Strategy for public comment. Building upon successes and shortcomings of the initial climate adaptation strategy in 2009, this draft outlines the state’s sector-specific plans to address climate adaptation and includes timelines and success metrics for each specific action. The 2021 Strategy is undergoing internal review, and the state invites the public to provide input that will inform the approach to finalizing the plan. Public Review and Comment will be accepted through mail and email up to November 17th. There will also be three regional workshops and two tribal listening sessions to solicit input on the draft. Details and registration links are posted on the 2021 California Climate Adaptation Strategy web page.
