Description

This technical report from California’s Fourth Climate Change Assessment documents the development and findings of the Adaptation Capability Advancement Toolkit (Adapt-CA), which aims to help local governments build their internal capacity to address climate change resilience. The research team conducted a broad literature review, an online survey, multiple regional stakeholder workshops, and focus groups to deepen the understanding of organizational barriers to adaptation in California local governments. These research inputs produced findings on organizational barriers experienced by California local government adaptation practitioners, and enabled the development and testing of Adapt-CA.
