Investing in Resilient Oregon Communities

Climate change is already impacting Oregon. For communities across the state to adapt and prosper, it is imperative to identify areas of risk and invest in solutions that restore natural resources, protect livelihoods and enhance the economy. Depending on where you live, climate impacts look very different on the landscape – warmer temperatures and changing precipitation patterns mean more intense storms at the coast, severe wildfire risk in Southern Oregon and low aquifers in eastern Oregon. Wherever you call home, our common thread is that natural resources, and their significant role in our economies, lifestyles and recreation, are threatened.

The strategies, infrastructure and initiatives needed to address climate impacts vary by region. The documents linked here provide a brief overview of the types of investments Oregon communities will need to mitigate for a changing climate and to foster resilience.
