The Office of Planning and Research and the California Natural Resources Agency are hosting two Extreme Heat Workshops on Tuesday, July 27th and Thursday, August 19th from 4-6 PM. At these workshops, the state will be asking for your input and expertise to ensure California takes the actions necessary towards mitigating and building resilience to the impacts of extreme heat events across built, natural, and social systems. Agenda, registration, and details to follow!
Extreme heat is a climate impact that will affect all areas of California. As a part of the 2021 update to the State Adaptation Strategy, California is developing an Extreme Heat Framework that will map out a strategy for addressing the broad impacts of rising temperatures on human health and well-being, infrastructure, and natural systems.
