Working together to build resilient
The Alliance of Regional Collaboratives for Climate Adaptation (ARCCA) is a network of leading regional collaboratives from across California that work together to advance adaptation statewide and increase local capacity to build community resilience. Through ARCCA, adaptation practitioners connect with peers across the state to exchange knowledge, engage in targeted problem-solving, and implement joint campaigns, effectively breaking down silos across sectors and jurisdictions.

Overcoming Financial and Institutional Barriers to Local Adaptation
ARCCA is supporting a study that aims to explore practical opportunities to fund adaptation and overcome institutional barriers to adaptation. The study is being conducted as a contribution to California’s Fourth Climate Change Assessment. As part of the study, regional stakeholder workshops are being conducted to gather input from local government staff about the challenges, best practices, and lessons learned in financing and implementing adaptation strategies.
Regional stakeholder workshops are being conducted from 9/29 – 10/26 in the Central Valley, Central Coast, Capital Region, North Coast, Sierra Nevada and San Diego Region. We hope you can join us! Register today at https://overcome-adaptation-barriers.eventbrite.com
