Understanding Climate Readiness for Sonoma County
There are several documents that can help you understand the impacts of climate change – and how we can adapt to those impacts – in Sonoma County.
Who we are:
The Sonoma County Adaptation Forum is presented by an alliance of non-profits, agencies, and businesses working together to increase awareness of climate impacts to Sonoma County and strategies for climate resilience.
Taking the lead on this event is the North Bay Climate Adaptation Initiative (NBCAI), a coalition of natural resource managers, policy makers and scientists who are committed to working together to create positive solutions to the problem of climate adaptation for the ecosystems and watersheds of Sonoma County. NBCAI members are experts and conservation leaders drawn from natural resource science and management organizations throughout the region.
The goal of NBCAI is to foster an open conversation between technical experts, land managers and policymakers in support of effective local scale climate adaptation strategies that preserve natural resources, biodiversity, and ecosystem services. Since climate adaptation is ultimately a regional issue, NBCAI aims to pilot an approach in Sonoma County that can be extended throughout the North Bay as a whole. Community Foundation Sonoma County has been a true visionary to support the ground-breaking work of NBCAI. We appreciate their support and applaud their role in investing in the promise of Sonoma County.
Other co-organizers and sponsors include: RCPA, Sonoma County Water Agency, Sustainable SSU at Sonoma State University, County of Sonoma Energy & Sustainability Division, County of Sonoma Public Health Division, Brelje & Race Consulting Engineers, Leadership Institute for Ecology and the Economy, Local Government Commission, Sustainable North Bay and Sonoma Ecology Center.
