ab32publichealth -- CAT-PHWG UPDATE: Safeguarding California: Reducing Climate Risks (plus, upcoming workshops) Posted: 15 Jan 2014 10:55:10
The Climate Action Team Public Health Workgroup Update:. Dear Public Health Leaders, The draft plan “Safeguarding California: Reducing Climate Risks”, an update to the state’s 2009 Climate Adaptation Strategy, is now being circulated for public review and comment through Feb. 28, 2014. CDPH contributed to the Public Health chapter, but this is the first time it has been circulated for public comment. Workshops Natural Resource is also hosting two workshops** at which the plan will be discussed and public comment collected. Both CDPH and Natural Resources Agency staff leading this effort are eager to hear from our local, regional and other public health and environmental health stakeholders about issues that are important to be included in the Public Health chapter and overall Safeguarding California plan. This plan will guide the state’s adaptation work for the next 3-5 years so it not only should capture our work today but anticipate upcoming needs and priorities. If I can provide any additional information on the plan or the comment process please do not hesitate to call on me. Reminder: Next meeting of the CAT PHWG is on Thursday, February 27 at 1 pm at the Cal/EPA building, Sacramento.
