Integrated Strategies for a Vibrant and Sustainable Fresno County (CA)

Description:

This report provides a suite of strategies that was developed by local leaders and experts during a series of workshops in 2009?2010. Workshop participants developed strategies for “climate change adaptation”– the process of preparing for climate change to reduce overall impacts to natural and human communities. By integrating adaptation strategies across the different sectors of society, county leaders will reduce conflict among diverse interests for limited resources, such as water, while increasing communication and lowering overall costs. Workshop participants considered both climate change impacts and on-the?ground vulnerabilities as they developed a suite of recommendations for increasing local resilience across sectors and communities.
