Alaska Climate Change Adaptation Planning Tool


This adaptation tool can help you and your community think about ways to adapt to changes you are already experiencing or that you expect in the future. It will help you identify impacts environmental changes may have on your community (“assess vulnerabilities”), devise strategies for coping with these changes, and locate resources to help. It consists of eight steps to help you create your own adaptation plan.

To create your plan, read through this document and then, using it as a guide, fill in your answers using the “Adaptation Plan for this Community” template file, a Microsoft Word document. Replace the text in brackets in that document with your own information. Download the template file on the Adapting to Climate Change in Coastal Alaska web page at http://marineadvisory.org/climate.
