Fort Collins Climate Change Adaptation Facilitation
Integrating Customized Departmental Climate Adaptation Strategies and Solutions
As part of this project Brendle Group will lead approximately 9 departments at the City of Fort Collins through a climate adaptation planning process to identify and assess the risks and vulnerabilities to climate change for each department and develop a plan for adapting to the identified risks. Through a number of facilitated workshops we will work with representatives from each city department as well as other community stakeholders to set goals and identify climate change adaptation strategies and solutions relevant to each of the participating city departments. An important part of this planning process will be integrating adaptation into the City’s current processes to help ensure the plan can be easily adopted by City staff. Finally our team will work with the City to create a framework for the City to use in future planning efforts to ensure climate adaptation is integrated at the appropriate places in the planning process.
