Planning August/September 2018

Special Issue on Climate

Ideally, resilience planning not only prepares communities for futures affected by climate change, but also identifies and acts on associated opportunities for economic development, public engagement, and increased equity. The August/September issue of Planning finds communities that are embracing opportunities for positive change as they prepare to meet the challenges of rising seas (in Virginia), coastal subsidence (in Louisiana), and extended drought (throughout the Southwest).
