Climate Action and Adaptation Planning
Applying science to build resilience for communities and ecosystems
Cascadia has worked with dozens of cities, counties, tribes, and state agencies along the west coast and across the country to create action strategies and implementation plans that meet client climate goals and address greenhouse gas emissions and climate impacts within a hyper local context. We ground our planning work in sound and transparent analysis and technical expertise—drawing from greenhouse gas emissions forecasts and models, vulnerability assessments, and emerging research and technology—to arrive at a strategic path toward meeting climate goals. Our process involves robust stakeholder engagement—including community members—to prioritize the specific strategies and actions that address the community’s greatest threats, protect its most vulnerable residents, and deliver the most compelling co-benefits for social, environmental, and economic resilience. Our plans are accessible to diverse audiences, visually engaging, and designed for use in day-to-day planning and prioritization.
