Lessons Learned on Local Climate Adaptation from the Urban Leaders Adaptation Initiative

In partnership with government leaders from ten large counties and cities, CCAP launched the Urban Leaders Adaptation Initiative to serve as a resource for local governments as they face important infrastructure and land-use decisions that affect local climate adaptation efforts and empower local communities to develop and implement climate resilient strategies. The goals of the project were exploring and catalyzing adaptation to climate change at the local level, spreading adaptation best practices from partners to other local and professional communities, and influencing national and state climate adaptation policies. This report provides an assessment of general lessons learned over the course of the project and thoughts about future directions for local climate adaptation.
