Climate Vulnerability and Adaptation Report
This Climate Vulnerability and Adaptation Report was created following a three-day community workshop organized by EcoAdapt, Virginia Tech, and the City of Santa Rosa. It includes a summary of local climate impacts in addition to a workshop produced vulnerability assessment, adaptation strategies, and adaptation implementation information. This Report will continue to be a resource for the City's Comprehensive General Plan update, which is currently underway.
