Abstract

The impacts of a changing climate – from sea level rise to altered weather patterns – will affect local governments’ efforts to manage stormwater, treat wastewater, and provide clean drinking water in their communities. This resource list was compiled to help local governments plan and implement climate change adaptation strategies. It was developed by the Environmental Finance Center Network through the Capacity Building for Sustainable Communities program funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Environmental Protection Agency. Through this program, EFCN is providing capacity building and technical assistance to recipients of grants from the federal Partnership for Sustainable Communities.
