Local government managers are increasingly on the front lines of the unprecedented challenge of climate change. Preparing Your (Small) Community for Climate Impacts offers a quick reference for ways to adapt your community to the hazards of climate change and describes how small local governments are developing adaptation best practices. Climate adaptation strategies are intended to help you, your staff, and your citizens build your community's capacity to prepare for and/or recover from natural disasters and environmental stresses that threaten your community's health, resiliency, and sustainability. This guide offers a quick review of the key concepts and sustainable techniques that public managers need to consider in developing their climate adaptation programs; lists the basic steps to get your planning effort started; briefly outlines several real-time case studies that illustrate how small local governments (populations of 600-50, 000) are adapting to the challenges of climate change; and offers the latest key resources for augmenting local disaster planning and creating climate adaptation programs.
