In the recent years, we have seen changes in the climate, resulting in many issues around the country, such as flooding, fire, health impacts, hot summers, and rainy winters. While a changing climate encompasses a wide range of disciplines, planners are in a unique situation to prepare and plan for a better future. In this episode, Eric Wojchik, Senior Planner at the Metropolitan Council, will talk about the regional Climate Vulnerability Assessment (CVA) project, and resources for planners to do similar analysis in their communities. Be sure to check out the Metropolitan Council CVA website, localized flooding and extreme heat story maps, and the Local Planning Handbook’s Resilience plan element.
