Preparing for Climate Change in California – A Public Health Approach CalBRACE: California Building Resilience against Climate Effects


The goals of the CalBRACE project are to enhance the California Department of Public Health’s (CDPH) capability to plan for and reduce health risks associated with climate change. The program provides resources and technical assistance for the state and local public health departments to build climate adaptation capacity and enhance resilience at the local and regional levels. CalBRACE is funded by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and joins 15 other states and two cities across the United States that are also conducting climate adaptation planning efforts from a public health perspective through the CDC Climate Ready States and Cities Initiative.
