California residents and city and county planners can identify potential climate change risks in specific areas throughout the state and access easy-to-understand resources for local planning efforts.

Cal-Adapt is a web-based climate adaptation planning tool that provides access to up-to-date information and data produced by the State of California's scientific and research community.
