Forward looking cities, regions and Indigenous communities are taking steps to understand and prepare for upcoming climate changes. EcoPlan provides a suite of services to help these communities identify and understand climate vulnerabilities and risks and to identify potential solutions and strategies to become more resilient in the face of coming challenges including increased flooding from sea level rise, health challenges from rising temperatures, and infrastructure vulnerability from climate change related hazards.
As lead authors of one of the UN’s principal climate planning tools, “Planning for Climate Change,” we know that climate change adaptation can require difficult decisions and trade-offs that require both sound technical analysis and deep community engagement. EcoPlan provides overall climate change planning process support, as well as a depth of experience in engagement and structured decision making, and we regularly coordinate the work of other experts as needed.
We have a range of climate change related experience including:
• Vulnerability analysis
• Community engagement and participatory decision-making
• Adaptation strategy development
• Community education and awareness building
• Climate risk communications
