Southern California Regional Climate Adaptation Framework

Toolbox Tuesday


This year’s ongoing wildfires are just one example of climate change’s devastating impact in Southern California, and for many communities, it can seem impossible to overcome. The Southern California Regional Adaptation Framework provides a suite of tools supporting both local and subregional adaptation planning, such as workshop materials and strategies for communicating climate change, General Plan guidance and model policy language, vulnerability assessment and mapping, and a collection of case studies.

This hour-long training will dive into the Southern California Climate Adaptation Planning Guide, a resource to help jurisdictions with adaptation planning from start to finish, as well as showcase land-use scenario analyses to study climate hazard risks and impacts across the SCAG region. The Southern California Regional Climate Adaptation Framework is anticipated to launch by the end of December 2020.
