This document presents best practices for embedding climate risk assessments into capital improvement planning processes at the municipal and county level, as a cost-effective means of building community resilience to climate-related threats. Drawing on available literature as well as case studies from jurisdictions around the country, this document is a companion to the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy’s report Mainstreaming Sea Level Rise Preparedness in Local Planning and Processes on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, which has been developed for jurisdictions participating in the Eastern Shore Climate Adaptation Partnership (ESCAP).
