About the Capital Region Climate Readiness Collaborative

We are a collaborative of local leaders seeking to build climate resilience throughout California’s Capital Region.

We bring together stakeholders from across sectors and jurisdictions to find regional solutions to address our shared challenges – drought, extreme heat, extreme weather events, wildfires and more. Our goal is to help the six counties of El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba, and the communities they encompass, thrive in the face of a changing climate.

Do you see your organization playing a role in this effort?

We work towards our vision by employing a wide array of strategies.

  • We are working to develop a common understanding of regional vulnerabilities and strategies to address climate impacts.
  • We identify regional priorities, planning efforts, implementation projects, replicable strategies and research needs by working with our diverse membership.
  • We provide a regular forum for local and regional leaders to learn, network and collaborate and climate resiliency efforts.
  • We provide coordination support to local and regional agencies to ensure that our region leverage resources and opportunities strategically while avoiding duplication.
  • We increase our region’s ability to identify and obtain resources to support regional priorities.
  • We provide a unified voice for the Capital Region, and its local entities, at the state and federal levels to influence policy, regulatory, and funding decisions.
  • We facilitate information and best practice sharing about addressing climate change adaptation and mitigation within the region and across the state and nation.
