The Capital Region Climate Readiness Collaborative (CRC) is a membership based collaborative network designed to promote greater climate change resilience planning coordination in the six-county Sacramento, California region (El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba Counties).
The Climate Strategy from New Mexico’s Interagency Climate Change Task Force presents a suite of policies that integrate climate change mitigation and adaptation throughout New Mexico’s state government programs and operations. It serves as a strategic guide for the state to achieve the mitigation and adaptation goals as ordered in Governor Lujan Grisham’s Executive Order 2019-003 mandating lower carbon emissions and adaptations to limit climate change impacts. The report describes New Mexico’s adaptation progress across state agencies and the focal sectors of public health, emergency preparedness, and water supply.

The Hudson River Sustainable Shorelines Project developed science-based recommendations for shore zone management along the Hudson River in eastern New York. The Project and recommendations are focused on natural and nature-based shoreline protection against storm surge and sea level rise. Landowners, land managers, engineers, and other decision-makers can find guidance on permitting, natural shoreline engineering and design, and best management practices to meet adaptation needs (eg. flooding and erosion protection) while enhancing ecological functions of the Hudson’s shorelines.

The National Estuarine Research Reserve System is a federal-state partnership. The federal government provides funding and administers the system, but the sites are managed on a day to day basis by state agencies, universities and other local partners. The Reserve System has identified climate change and its impacts as strategic priorities, and is developing an initiative with key actions to address climate change adaptation, mitigation, and to promote resilience of estuary ecosystems.

This assessment summarizes the current and anticipated climate impacts on Missoula County, Montana, and offers strategic recommendations in five focal areas including: water supply, wildfire, flooding and water quality, changes to species and habitats, and the local impacts of global change. The report is a result of a community-based process in which residents and cross-sector leaders of Missoula County convened over local climate impacts and solutions. The assessment also includes a comprehensive review of Missoula County’s socioeconomic systems and vulnerabilities to climate change.
