State agency seeks input on climate risks

Published: Friday, Sep. 27, 2013 - 10:42 am

The California Natural Resources Agency on Monday will host a meeting in Sacramento to get public input on how the state should prepare for climate risks.

The 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. meeting will be in the Natural Resources Building auditorium at 1416 Ninth St. It’s one of a series of public meetings being held statewide.

The agency is working with other state agencies to draft a Safeguarding California Plan, an update to the 2009 climate adaptation strategy.

Since the 2009 plan was adopted, California has taken multiple actions that have drawn national attention, including efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Agency officials want to consider steps to respond to other byproducts of climate change, including wildfires, floods, severe storms and periodic high-heat waves.

The California Natural Resources Agency is planning to release a draft version of the updated Safeguarding California Plan for public review and comment by the end of this year.
