Climate Ready Communities

UW-Cooperative Extension Climate Ready Communities Initiative
Wisconsin’s communities are at risk from our changing climate. Extension is able to assist communities in identifying vulnerabilities to those risks, and evaluating strategies to prepare for them. UW-Extension’s Climate Ready Communities initiative provides training and support for county and campus faculty looking to work with local government, business, agriculture, forestry and other decision makers to:

Raise awareness Assess Vulnerability Become Resilient
Climate science Extreme heat Opportunities
Historic climate trends Drought Planning
Projected climate trends Heavy rainfall Implementation
