Climate Adaptation Plan for Town of Truckee
The Geos Institute is working with the Town of Truckee to develop a climate change Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Plan for the Truckee community. Following the highly collaborative Whole Community planning framework, the Geos Institute will hold a series of stakeholder and community workshops and events that will provide ample opportunity for community members to help shape climate change solutions. The resulting climate change adaptation plan for Truckee will be highly collaborative with a focus on protecting diverse populations, natural resources, local culture, the economy, and infrastructure from climate impacts.
The official kickoff for this project was held on March 15, 2019. The Geos Institute provided an overview of Whole Community Adaptation and the engagement process designed specifically for Truckee. Coordination between the Truckee 2040 planning effort and climate adaptation planning was also discussed. An advisory team representative of the full range of diverse populations in Truckee is being formed to guide this project.
