Draft California Climate Adaptation Policy Guide Feedback

The California Natural Resources Agency, California Emergency Management Agency and California Polytechnic State University – San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly) seek feedback on the newly released draft Adaptation Policy Guide (APG). The APG provides a method to aid local communities and regional entities in evaluating vulnerabilities and devising strategies to address climate change impacts. The APG is not intended to provide a prescriptive set of strategies. Instead, it will provide a framework to guide decision makers through the critical considerations necessary for adaptation policy development. The Draft APG was released to the public and the comment period began as part of the April 9th Impacts and Local Adaptation Conference, organized by the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research.

Feedback is critical for refining the Adaptation Policy Guide to best serve local and regional users. The draft APG can be accessed, and comments sent, through the Climate Adaptation Portal.

Comments will be received through Monday, May 18th, 2012.
