Meeting to discuss formation of climate change plan

The state is looking for public input on how it should prepare for future impacts associated with climate change, including bigger and more intense wildfires, floods, severe storms and heat waves.

The California Natural Resource Agency will be holding a public meeting from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday at the Yurok Tribal Office in Klamath.

It is one of five public workshops the agency is holding statewide.

“Klamath and the North Coast in general is an extremely important part of the state,” said Clark Blanchard, spokesman for the California Natural Resources Agency.  “We wanted to make sure folks from the other places in the state have an opportunity to weigh in on this process.”

The agency has also been making a “concerted effort to increase tribal outreach and tribal consultation,” Blanchard said.

The public meetings will contribute to drafting the Safeguarding California Plan, an update to the 2009 climate adaptation strategy.

Since the 2009 plan was released, experts’ understanding of climate change risks has evolved and so have strategies for responding to climate change events.  

There will be presentations on how climate change will affect a variety of sectors: biodiversity and habitat, energy,  forestry, emergency management, ocean and coastal ecosystems, public health, transportation, water and agriculture. After each presentation, there will be an opportunity for the public to make comments.

Additional information on the meeting, including an agenda, can be found at resources.ca.gov/climate_adaptation/.
