Description

The Delta Adapts Vulnerability Assessment evaluates the vulnerability of the Delta and Suisun Marsh to climate impacts through end of century. As part of the Delta Adapts initiative, the Delta Stewardship Council also created a custom social vulnerability index to identify areas within the Delta that are socially vulnerable to climate change impacts. The Vulnerability Assessment, together with the proposed adaptation plan (in development), form the Delta Adapts: Creating a Climate Resilient Future initiative, a comprehensive, regional approach to climate resiliency that cuts across regional boundaries and commits to collaboration across state, local, and regional levels.
