Local Adaptation Planning
Oregon map

In 2011, five local health jurisdictions were awarded funds to develop plans using the BRACE framework​ (developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).

The following are summaries of each of the climate adaptation​ plans created by participating health departments:

Benton County
Crook County
Jackson County
Multnomah County
North Central Public Health District

​​In late 2013, we provided a very small amount of additional assistance to implement some of the actions in these respective plans. A Climate and Health Planning Toolbox will soon be made available online in response to lessons learned from these planning and implementation efforts.
