The Technical Advisory Group (TAG) included members from nearly every State agency, local and regional governments, non-governmental and community-based organizations, and the private sector. The TAG met from April 2016 through January 2017 and produced a guidance document called “Planning and Investing for a Resilient California: A Guidebook for State Agencies.” This document provides high level guidance on what future conditions to plan for and how State agencies should approach planning differently in light of a changing climate.
