The Safeguarding California Plan: 2017 Update – California’s Climate Adaptation Strategy will build on nearly a decade of adaptation strategies, which includes the 2009 California Adaptation Strategy and the 2014 Safeguarding California to communicate current and needed actions state government should take to build climate change resiliency. How we manage our water, grow our food, transport our goods, and live our daily lives has been built around the climate and weather we experience. We use a number of words, including adaptation, resilience, readiness, and safeguarding, to describe a simple concept: ensuring that people, communities, and natural systems are able to withstand the impacts of climate disruption.
The Draft of the 2017 Update can be found here:

By drawing upon reliable, time-tested strategies today, tailored to what we learn from our communities across the state, we can increase resilience to the effects of climate change and mitigate the harmful impacts to future generations. Your experience and expertise would make your perspective invaluable to our workshop, so we invite you to be part of this cooperation through the following public workshops or directly to the Natural Resources Agency at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are planning on attending a public workshop, please confirm your participation by contacting us at safeguardingCA@climateresolve.org. We hope to see you there.
