The Pierce County Council passed legislation endorsing the Sustainability 2020 Plan in 2016. A portion of the plan called for “a completed Climate Change Resilience Strategy for Pierce County. This strategy will develop recommendations with priority action steps.”
This Climate Change Resilience plan formally starts the process of preparing for the impacts of Climate Change in a manner that should reduce risks to people and minimize financial losses to the County. Preparing for the impacts of Climate Change is the responsible thing to do for the residents of Pierce County.
