EPA Tools & Resources: Climate Change Adaptation Resource Center (ARC-X)
EPA’s Climate Change Adaptation Resource Center (ARC-X) is an innovative system designed to help all 40,000 communities across the United States anticipate, prepare for, and adapt to the impacts of climate change. It supports local government officials in every community, from those with extensive experience and expertise dealing with the impacts of climate change, to those working in communities who are just beginning to meet those challenges.
The ARC-X is unlike any other resource currently available to the public. Users are given an opportunity to first “self-identify” by indicating the region of the country in which they live and the specific issues of concern to them. The system then provides them with an integrated package of information tailored specifically to their needs, including insights on the implications of climate change for the issues they care about, case studies of how similar communities have successfully adapted, access to adaptation tools to replicate those successes, available training, and information on federal sources of funding. This webinar will provide an overview of ARC-X and how to use it.
