Regional approaches to climate challenges are a powerful, effective way to catalyze local action, build community and climate resilience and connect, strengthen and support local leaders. This is the first of several publications designed to share our understanding of the critical components of successful regional approaches, what’s happened to date and the promising practices we’ve seen as we work with regional climate change adaptation partners throughout the U.S.

The second publication of this series is titled Regional Governance for Climate Action, which explores strategies emerging from 12 regional collaboratives to build or expand governance structures for regional climate action.
