Find State and Local Adaptation Plans The Georgetown Climate Center tracks progress states are making in implementing their adaptation plans and provides quick access to local plans in every state on their main website.
Small communities and rural areas (defined as municipalities with a population under 50,000 people) face unique climate adaptation challenges. Small communities often have limited administrative capacity within government, less diversified economies, more dependence on natural resources, and greater physical isolation from critical infrastructure and services. This page includes resources to help policymakers understand, plan, and prepare for impacts of climate change in rural areas and small communities.
Where relevant to the concerns of small communities, some resources from suburbs and counties with larger populations are also included.
