California Climate Adaptation Strategy
In 2009, California adopted a statewide Climate Adaptation Strategy (CAS) that summarizes climate change impacts and recommends adaptation strategies across seven sectors: Public Health, Biodiversity and Habitat, Oceans and Coastal Resources, Water, Agriculture, Forestry, and Transportation and Energy. The 2009 CAS was the first of its kind in the usage of downscaled climate models to more accurately assess statewide climate impacts as a basis for providing guidance for establishing actions that prepare, prevent, and respond to the effects of climate change.
The California Natural Resources Agency, in coordination with other state agencies, will be updating the Climate Adaptation Strategy. This update will build on the progress made since 2009 through coordination of the latest scientific studies and guidance tools such as Cal-adapt and the Adaptation Planning Guide to help further the state's efforts in responding to climate impacts. The CAS update is planned for release to the public as a draft for comment in early 2013.
