At the direction of Governor Brown, DLCD is coordinating the State of Oregon's work on the Oregon Climate Change Adaptation Framework. The Framework explores the impacts of climate change in Oregon and identifies how state agencies can effectively respond to them.
We are working with 24 state agencies – from Business Oregon to the Oregon Health Authority, the Oregon Department of Forestry to the Oregon Department of Energy, and many more. DLCD reviewed climate adaptation plans from 17 other states to identify the most effective government response strategies and, over many months, vetted them with the multi-agency group. The 2020 Framework builds on a 2010 Framework document, and will be adopted as part of Oregon's Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan.
