County-Wide Climate Resilience Planning

County-Wide Climate Resilience Planning

climate change is expected to have wide-ranging impacts on life in Chelan County. In recent decades Washington has experienced significant droughts, declining snowpack, and several extreme wildfire seasons - providing an indication of the future as the climate continues to warm. In order to build resilience to the impacts of climate change, Chelan County began engaging with local and state partners in early 2019 and continued this engagement in 2020 with the development of the Chelan County Climate Resilience Strategy. The Climate Resiliency Round Table will expand on this effort and serve as the mechanism for the coordination of the priority activities identified in the Climate Resiliency Strategy. Below is an archive of the workshops that led to the establishment of the Climate Resiliency Strategy, information on the Climate Resiliency Round Table, and a library of materials and resources related to the various locally-led efforts to build climate resiliency in Chelan County. We invite you to become part of this process and explore the materials on this page. They provide background information on the topic and information on the work and engagements that have led to where we are now.
