EPA’s Estuaries Program Publishes Draft Climate Change Adaptation Planning Workbook

EPA National Estuaries Program has released a new draft document for public comment entitled, “Being Prepared for Climate Change:  A Workbook for Developing Risk-Based Adaptation Plans.”  The target audience for the workbook is environmental professionals at organizations that manage environmental resources, especially cities or organizations with a coastal or watershed focus.  This workbook is different from the Climate Ready Water Utilities tools in that the planning actions and responses are mainly focused on shoreline and wetlands protection, as well as drainage, land use, and development.  However, drinking water supply and demand are mentioned in connection with these other types of efforts.
