AnnouncementIn-Person Regional Workshops for California’s Fifth Climate Change Assessment

Published: 6/22/2023

Updated 9/13/2023

Join California’s Fifth Climate Change Assessment team for in-person workshops from July-September 2023 in each of the Assessment’s nine regions of the state! During these meetings, attendees will be invited to provide input on the draft framework for the Regional Synthesis Reports (regional reports), identify local priorities for the Fifth Assessment to address, and partners interested in being part of regional author teams.

These workshops will also include an opportunity to both share community-level adaptation and resilience priorities to inform the 2024 Update to California’s Climate Adaptation Strategy, and identify climate-vulnerability variables that guide the development of the State’s Vulnerable Communities Platform.

Local and regional partners representing science/academia, community-based organizations, tribes and tribal organizations, local governments, and members of the public are encouraged to attend.
