Safeguarding California Workshops – Various

The California Natural Resources Agency wishes to invite you to participate in one of the upcoming 2017 Safeguarding California Workshops.

The Safeguarding California Plan: 2017 Update – California’s Climate Adaptation Strategy builds on nearly a decade of adaptation strategies, which includes the 2009 California Adaptation Strategy and the 2014 Safeguarding California. How California manages its water, grows its food, transports its goods, and how Californians live their daily lives, all of these things have been constructed around the climate we experience. Whether you call it adaptation, resilience, readiness or safeguarding, these words describe a simple concept: ensuring that people, communities, and natural systems are able to withstand the impacts of climate disruption.

The Safeguarding California Plan: 2017 Update is intended to communicate a clear accounting of current and needed actions state government should take to build climate change resiliency. The State of California invites the public to provide input to the 2017 update through these public workshops or directly to the Natural Resources Agency at climate@resources.ca.gov.

By drawing upon reliable, time-tested strategies today, tailored to what we learn from our communities across the state, we can increase resilience to the effects of climate change and mitigate the harmful impacts to future generations. Your experience and expertise would make your perspective invaluable to our workshop, so we invite you to be part of this cooperation.

A working draft of the 2017 update and a more detailed program will be announced in the near future, which will include final dates and locations for the Sierra Nevada and San Diego workshops.

We would like you to confirm your participation by contacting us at safeguardingCA@climateresolve.org. We hope to see you there.
