Missoula County (MT) Climate Action: Creating a Resilient and Sustainable Community


In 2011, a series of workshops and meetings was carried out in Missoula (MT) as part of the ClimateWise process. ClimateWise is a process developed by the Geos Institute that uses science to help communities better understand what types of climate changes to expect, how the different sectors of the community will be affected, and how to prepare in ways that provide the greatest benefit across the community. The strategies that were developed through this proves are intended to make Missoula County more resilient and more collaborative in its approach. These strategies are beneficial to the community regardless f the trajectory of future change.
This report provides a summary of the outcome from a 2 day workshop that was held in Missoula County. The workshop participants discussed what climate change impact Missoula County can expect and ways to deal with this change.
