California Natural Resources Agency
The Fourth California Climate Change Assessment (Fourth Assessment) is the first inter-agency effort to implement a substantial portion of the Climate Change Research Plan, which articulates near-term climate change research needs to ensure that the state stays on track to meet its climate goals. The State has completed three prior Climate Change Assessments. The Fourth California Climate Change Assessment (Fourth Assessment) will provide critical additional information to support decisions that will safeguard the people, economy and resources of California including information regarding expected climate impacts from extreme weather events such as more frequent and more severe wildfires, and more intense and more frequent drought. Data and findings from this Assessment will be available via Cal-Adapt, in the form of regional reports, and more.
