Accelerate Climate Resilience with Local Planning, Policies and Practices: Three Ways to Advance Your Adaptation Success

Proactive climate adaptation plans can reduce local climate impacts, but only if they are put into action. We asked and you told us - what you most want to know is how to get moving quickly by integrating climate resilience into existing plans, policies and practices. Implementing your strategies rapidly and efficiently is the clear goal. Comprehensive plans, land use codes and ordinances, water resource management plans, and hazard mitigation plans are all prime opportunities to activate your climate resilience strategies.

We’ve created a practical, 4 part short course to show you how to integrate climate plans and adaptation strategies into local plans, policies and practices. You will learn to:

  • Identify opportunities to get your adaptation plan off the shelf and into action

  • Frame your adaptation strategies for easy integration into local planning, policy and practice

  • Apply practical adaptation solutions to comprehensive planning and land use codes and ordinances

  • Bring climate resilience to an integrated water resource management approach

  • Create or update a hazard mitigation plan with climate resilience strategies

Session 3: August 18, 1pm Eastern

Climate Resilience for Integrated Water Resource Management

Drought, flooding, source water security, and changing precipitation patterns are climate risks that must be addressed on the path to resiliency. Putting climate into a framework of integrated water resource management is ever more critical. This session offers real world applications for cities, utilities, and other public / private influence points.

  • Elements of resilience for water resource management decisions

  • Framing adaptation for water quality and quantity objectives

  • Framing adaptation for extreme weather and hazard mitigation

  • Opportunities for source water protection and water resource security

  • Integration with government, utility, and business policies and practices

  • Education and outreach to build collaboration across sectors and jurisdictions
