SCAG Regional Climate Adaptation Framework



Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG)




The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) developed the Regional Climate Adaptation Framework (Framework) to assist local and regional jurisdictions in managing the negative impacts of climate change. The Framework provides an overview of how the Southern California region can work together to plan and prepare for the impacts of sea level rise, extreme heat, increasingly frequent and damaging wildfires, and other climate-related issues. The Framework includes new tools for local jurisdictions, such as Communication & Outreach Strategies and Templates that can help jurisdictions and community based organizations engage with residents to understand better how climate related hazards are affecting community members. The Framework also includes the Southern California Climate Adaptation Planning Guide as a resource for local planning that describes the range of climate change hazards the SCAG region is likely to face in the coming decades.
