Cascadia equips our clients with knowledge, cutting-edge solutions, and roadmaps to thrive in the face of a changing climate. We work with states, cities, counties, agencies, and tribes to develop climate action plans, renewable energy plans, and climate adaptation plans based on robust vulnerability assessments, greenhouse gas inventories, tailored analyses, and inclusive stakeholder engagement. We help foundations assess impact and develop strategies for future climate-related grantmaking. We make sure that plans are implementable on the ground by detailing ways to monitor, measure, and report progress. And we apply an equity lens, working to ensure that all populations are included and looking at who is likely to benefit from potential actions.
We work at all stages of greenhouse gas measurement and reporting, from evaluating and recommending appropriate protocols or renewable energy strategies to conducting comprehensive organizational and communitywide inventories. Our clients range from local governments to private industry to transportation agencies. We forecast future trends, model different scenarios and strategies to achieve goals, and support decisionmaking around mitigation strategies and actions to arrive at clear, broadly-supported plans.
We translate the latest climate information for decisionmakers and lead participatory processes within organizations and communities to evaluate and prioritize climate risks and adaptation options.
Through our Climate Impacts Decision Support Tool (CIMPACT-DST™), we enable clients to easily integrate climate considerations into planning and development processes and build system-wide resilience to climate change impacts.
We develop outreach materials to clearly communicate information on climate impacts and ways that governments, organizations, and individuals can build resilience.
